Most agents will be familiar with selling a property that comes with a sitting tenant.
But what about a tenant that pays no rent?
That is the proposition on offer from Leaders.
The agent is marketing a semi in St Albans, Hertfordshire, for £350,000.
It comes with a driveway, garage and three bedrooms plus the non-paying tenant, aged 64.
The description from Leaders said: “Calling all investors!
“Leaders is pleased to bring to the market this extended three bedroom semi-detached house with garage and driveway.
“The current vendor would like to remain at the property rent free as a long term tenant.”
Properties in the same postcode seem to sell at closer to £500,000.
Mark Rowe, managing director at Rowe Property Services, said: “At first glance, it looks as though the owner would like someone else to take the strain of the property ownership and mortgage off their hands, in return for living there rent free … how appealing.
“Delving deeper, it seems as though the marketing price is cheap, as the majority of properties in that road seem to go for at least £100,000 more.
“However, there are no internal images, so the interior could be awful.
“The only benefit I can see for an investor is the fact that it would be classed as tax neutral, as there’s no income, so you wouldn’t pay any tax on no income, but why would you invest with no return?
“Could it be because there’s the element of buying this house at a largely reduced price, with the option of selling at a later date, perhaps?”
Vendor Peter Yielding said he has already received two offers.
