My Landlord is Selling the Property where I am Still Living In? Here is what Landlord and Tenants Solicitors Have to Say

If you are in a situation where you are asked to leave because the landlord is selling the property while you are in the middle of a tenancy then you do not need to  not panic as you have certain rights. It is without doubt a very frustrating situation; however, according to Landlord and Tenants Solicitors, you do not have to leave the property.

What can be done?

Legally speaking, your tenancy should remain unaffected and you can go on living in the property till your tenancy ends. So, if your tenancy has 6 months or so remaining, you can stay for that time! Furthermore, you don’t have to let anybody inside the property for viewings. Technically speaking, your landlord is only allowed to force himself in the premises under emergency circumstances only (such as a fire).

What if I Leave Early?

Theres always a chance that you might not want to continue living there yourself. In which case, you can demand your landlord for a cash settlement if your tenancy is still valid. You should speak to Landlord and Tenants Solicitors for more information regarding these settlements.
