What are the rules for a house raffle – and what happens if not enough tickets are sold?
What is a house raffle and how is it legal?
House raffles are becoming increasingly popular as dozens are held in the UK every year.
For the seller, the idea is to sell enough competition cards to cover the requested price – plus the costs for the operation.
Most have set up a website to advertise their competition and charge between £ 2 and £ 5 per ticket to attract as many participants as possible. However, more expensive properties can be raffled for £ 25 per ticket.
Once they reach their target, they randomly choose a lucky winner – however, the draw must be done by a regulated lottery company, not the owner.
If you want to keep the money you have won, you must either run a free raffle or add a competitive element to the raffle.
Participants should have to demonstrate their skills, knowledge or judgment to win the main prize.
Many people get around this by asking an incredibly simple question, such as, "What style is this house? A – Victorian, B – tudor or C – Georgian ”when people pay for their competition ticket.
Others played the ball games on site to determine the winner.
How often do house raffles fail?
More and more raffles are not hitting ticket targets as people become suspicious of them.
In this case, the organizers use their general terms and conditions.
These usually allow them to keep 25 percent of total sales to cover their time.
You can also deduct other reasonable operating costs such as legal or PR expenses.
The rest of the money is then given away – but it is always less than the value of the house that was for sale.
