Negative Equity Repossession

Low or Negative Equity in Your Property

Negative equity has returned in full force since 2008. Many people who took out a mortgage in the last couple of years before the crash now find that they now owe nearly as much as their home is worth and you have Negative Equity. Even those who have some equity are unable to sell their homes because of the high cost of agents fees and early repayment penalties.

If you need to sell quickly to avoid repossession and you have little or Negative Equity in your home it’s worth asking your lender to remove any early repyament penalty.
You can also try to sell your home privately to avoid paying estate agents fees. Many estate agents are clueless when it comes to selling homes with Negative Equity in a downturn and their only answer is ‘Reduce your price, Mr Seller!’

If you have low or Negative Equity this is not possible. Cash property buyers also demand large discounts from the market value. If you need to sell your home with Negative Equity you need to find someone who specialises in buying this type of property and who can pay the price you need.

What Action Can I Take?

  • Speak to your lender to ask them to remove the Early Repayment Penalty if you have Negative Equity
  • Look at the option of renting your home to tenants and moving out (bear in mind the Government has just announced a new Landlords License)
  • Talk to a specialist property buyer to see if you can sell despite your negative equity

What Are My Options?

Renting your Negative Equity home out could be an option but many people are unaware of the costs and respsonsibilities associated with being a landlord. If you can remain in your Negative Equity home and continue to make the mortgage payments you can try to wait until the market recovers. Or you can look for a specialist negative equity property buyer.
