Why has selling a flat become difficult?
Why has selling a flat become difficult?
If you currently own a flat you may be disgruntled by the lack of interest on the open market. Flats and apartments have traditionally been the first step on the property ladder for first-time buyers. However, with different government schemes available – as well as the Bank of Mum and Dad – more first-time buyers are bypassing flats and moving straight into larger properties. Add to this a higher number of first-time buyers remaining at home to save larger deposits and those who have become stuck renting, means a large portion of the target demographic for flats have changed tact.
You should also not forget the flat legislation that was put into place after the Grenfell Tower tragedy in 2017. The cladding scandal has put many people off investing in flats, with an estimated 30,000 sales having fallen through due to classing issues and mortgage rejections.

Selling a flat with cladding?
Unlike other cash buyers we don’t discriminate against flats with cladding. It is worth remembering not all cladding is combustible – this is the element that makes it dangerous. In order to sell a clad flat the government require an EWS1 (External Wall System Survey) to be carried out. A fire engineer will carry out the survey, producing a report that will grade a flat from A1 (the best outcome) to B2 (the flat has combustible materials present). B2 flats will require work to be carried out before selling for safety reasons.
Flats that achieve an A1 grade are significantly easier to sell. Many buyers who discover a flat is anything but A1 are often weary about putting in an offer. However, Gaffsy can provide a solution regardless of the outcome of an EWS1. We can give you a cash offer on flats which have a completed ESW1 completed as well as those which do not.
As a member of the NAPB and The Property Ombudsman you can rest assured you are in the best possible hands when it comes to selling your flat with cladding. We will help you find the best route to sale and more information regarding cladding can be found Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
Selling a flat with a short lease?
Understandably buyers will want to purchase flats with longer leases. Rarely do lenders offer mortgages on flats with under 80 years on the lease, so it’s in your best interest to extend where possible. General standards suggest extending leases of less than 99 years before selling. However, lease extensions are expensive. See below a ballpark expectation of what you may have to pay:
|Years remaining on your lease||Typical cost to extend by 90 years on a £200,000 flat|
Add on to this any legal fees and you could be left stumped as to whether you can even afford to sell.
The open market often isn’t kind when it comes to selling flats with short leases. Regardless of how long is left on your lease Gaffsy can guarantee you flat sale. We offer a cash house buyer service, meaning we have the funds available to buy your flat from you now. We will cover your legal costs and can complete as quickly as you require.
