Don't do it! Your head is telling you to walk away and just the news of the tenants would put me right off.

Honestly, a better house will turn up, it may not be the next one or the 10th one - but YOUR house will turn up.

Thanks both. The tenants in the property definitely make me nervous, especially as they don't want to leave. It was an extended family of 5-6 people, one with a baby on the way, a large dog and apparently the property isn't attractive to take over with tenants in situ as they are paying a really low rent from a historical agreement. So I feel like they would find it very difficult to find somewhere else to move to!

I meant to add that the parking didn't appear to be an issue. There was an allocated space for the property, a central courtyard with loads of empty spaces and many spaces marked as visitor parking, lots empty at 6pm on a week day. So while parking concerns are valid for this type of development it seemed fine.

Firstly, don't get sucked in by the agents baloney. If it's had an offer, it clearly wasn't in the realm of what the vendors will consider as if it was, it wouldn't be on the market for you to view. The agent is just trying to panic you - don't let them.

Secondly, I would be providing feedback to the agent about how difficult you found the place to view and the behaviour of the tenants. Was the agent there with you?

Yes the agent was there and was clearly unhappy about it, he did apologise and said if we wanted to come back he would ensure we had access to all the rooms. I wouldn't be surprised if the owner or agent will be having words with them.

DH thought it was probably rubbish that they had an offer already, they may very well have but as you say it can't have been a very good one.

I'm not totally ruling it out but I think we will probably find something more suitable elsewhere so if it goes I'm not that bothered.

We saw a lovely house but it was for sale due to divorce. Basically been on the market for 2 years as well overpriced but also because the half left in the house has said to the agents they won't budge. We didn't view in the end because we didn't want the hassle!

An interesting first viewing... the property has tennants in it currently who have been there 10yrs and are not keen on leaving. There was about 6 of them living there and they all stood around in pjs and dressing gowns watching us so didn't really feel like we could poke around in cupboards and things. Didn't even get to see the bathroom as one of them was locked in there- smoking weed going by the very strong smell.
I can only think they are being awkward as they don't want the property sold. The agent said they have already recieved an offer though, even though it's only been on the market a few days. So probably not for us as we find want to move that quickly.

I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole.
I think you could have real problems getting the tenants to move out given that they pay a low rent and it sounds like they're trying to put you off buying the house with the way they were when you viewed.

That's exactly what I thought- DH thinks it's not an issue despite that exact thing happening to one of his friends! Hoping when we see some more he will forget about that one

OP something in this doesn't stack up. If it is a low rent then unless it was an AST with a particularly long term then the landlord would be able to increase the rent at renewal.

If the term has expired and it is just rolling on then the landlord may have difficulty getting vacant possession which would have to be a condition of completion. This means completion could move which gives any buyer logistical problems.

Buying a house is stressful enough without these issues and these tenants will be a problem at every viewing and every inspection.
