Portolio is here to provide you with quality tenanted properties at a fair purchase price. Please see towards to the bottom of this page for the answers to some frequently asked questions related to buying tenanted property.
Please do get in touch to find out about our off-market selection and also our large portfolios for sale.
We work for many landlords who have, for one reason or another, decided to sell their property with a tenant in situ. Why? Well, it is a much quicker solution for them and it also means they can continue to receive rent right up to the settlement of the sale.
Many of these landlords prefer to sell their property "off-market". What that simply means is that the property we're selling is not advertised on any website. So again, please do get in touch to ask about our off-market deals.
The right info
On Portolio you'll be given an expert's rental valuation, you'll get the lease dates, the safety certificate information and more. You, as an investor, will get the info you need.
A fair purchase price
The seller is choosing to market their property with a sitting tenant and, as such, they may be more open to accepting a reasonable offer for a quick efficient sale.
It’s very early days for Portolio. We are based in Edinburgh and so we’ll start here but plan to sign up member letting agents across the UK.
When a landlord decides to sell they usually end the tenancy and then start the selling process. Simply, these landlords have decided to start the process now, and sell with the tenants still in the flat.
Do I still need a solicitor?
Yes. The selling agent will do all the work until your offer has been accepted and then pass the baton to the solicitors, to deal with the missives.
Can I view?
Yes. Please just contact the selling agent to arrange.
Do I have to pay any extra fees?
It's not common for properties that will appear on this site. If there is a "Buyer's Fee" then it is because the vendor (seller) isn’t paying a fee.
Can I get a home report?
Yes. Please just hit the request button on the property detail page. If you have any problems then then please get in touch.
Do you have any brochures?
We made the decision not to incorporate an elaborate brochure but we are constantly reviewing our offering, so please feel free to give feedback.
Do I have to keep the current tenants?
No you don’t. The speed at which you can change/remove the tenants depends on length of lease. If asked, we would encourage you to keep the tenants but we know that will depend on the rent being paid and your plans.
Can I find out more about the current tenants?
Yes you can. It’s important you’re confident the tenants are not in arrears and/or are not partaking in anti-social behaviour. Selling property with bad tenants is not the way it works.
