Frequently Asked Questions

Would you like to know more?

Does selling a house differ from selling an apartment?

In principle, the process of selling a house or an apartment is the same, such as the valuation or brokerage stages. However, the required documentation for an apartment sale does differ slightly. These include the partition deeds, minutes of the last three homeowners’ meetings, maintenance fee reserves statement, and the budget plan.

Can I sell my property even if it is rented out?

Absolutely, but please be aware that the sale does not break any of the legal terms of the tenancy. For buyers looking for a capital investment, the fact that there is a current tenant will not matter at the time of the sale. In the case of all other buyers looking to move into the property themselves, a tenancy is a disadvantage and this may have a negative impact on the sale price. You should also check, if applicable, whether the person renting your house or apartment has a right of first refusal.

How do I sell an inherited property?

If you are the sole heir, you have full control over the sale. However, you will need authorisation (in the form of a will or certificate of inheritance) to correct the land register entry and must do this beforehand. If there are other heirs besides you, they are deemed to be co-owners and their consent is required. No taxes will be due if the deceased lived in the house at least until the year of sale and the two previous years; or if they owned the house for at least ten years.

Can I sell my property if their is still an outstanding mortgage?

Yes! In cases like this, you will pay off the outstanding loan with the bank with the corresponding cut of the proceeds from the sale. Please be aware, however, that most banks charge an early repayment fee for such a premature repayment. You can only avoid this if you promptly acquire a new property and deposit it as new collateral for the current loan (“property exchange”) or if the buyer assumes the existing loan (“debtor exchange”).

Is now the right time to sell my property?

Even with the upmost flexibility about when you sell, there are still understandable concerns about inflation, interest rates, and how buyer behaviour could impact a sale. Our expert team is here to guide you every step of the way to ensure that you secure the very best sale price, regardless of external factors.
