Many property owners who bought at the peak of the market, especially new builds or off the plan properties, find themselves in a situation where their property value has significantly reduced. It’s especially scary when that property owner has a mortgage on the property which is above the market value and he can’t find a way out!
This means that after a seller has paid estate agent fees, legal fees, monthly mortgage payment, service charges, maintenance etc until their house has sold, that they will owe the bank more money than they can get for the sale of their property. When your mortgage amount is higher than your sale price value, you are in what is called “negative equity.” The problem with negative equity is that it means if you must sell your property, the price you are likely to achieve for it will be lower than the amount you need to repay to the bank, and so you will walk away owing the bank money.
For example, if you have a mortgage of say £200,000, and similar properties to yours are selling for only £170,000, if you were to sell your property today, buyers would only pay you £170,00 (minus legal fees and estate agent fees). This means you would owe the bank over £30,000.
Until now, the only real solution for negative equity property was to rent your property out and constantly dip you hand into your pocket to cover the ongoing expenses for years. With interest rates set to rise, many sellers who are struggling to make their mortgage payments now are going to be in an even worse position soon when higher monthly payments kick in. On top of this, you are likely to have some or all of the following costs if you choose to rent your property out;
- high service charges
- rental void periods between tenants
- insurance payments
- maintenance costs
- property managing agent costs
- tenant stops paying rent
- other property related expenses
It won’t take long before your rent simply will not be enough to cover your costs for renting the property out. If your boiler breaks and needs replacing, this may be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.
