    Can tenancy agreement be ended if property is sold

    My tenant has a 'bare contractual tenancy'. What is the position if I decide to sell the property before the end of his agreement? Can I serve notice for him to leave?
    Thanks

    If you have agreed a fixed term you cannot end it without the tenant's agreement.

      You could still put the property up for sale, and aim to exchange when the tenancy comes to an end if there is not long left on it, or sell it with the tenant still in place.

        Thank you both, that's what I needed to know!

        What would the position be if I wanted to move into the property myself?

          It would be the same.

            again, you could only move into it yourself when the tenancy comes to an end- you can't end it early. It may be worth speaking to the tenant, because you never know, they may just be willing to move out early if their circumstances allow.

              Except that L can, if T commits a breach.

                I used a company called Vilcol to trace someone. They gave me the new address and an updated phone number too. No solicitor needed. I did not have any previous address so had to pay a higher fee, but you already have the previous address so it will be lower. And if no trace, then no fee.

                First post and straight in with a question! We had a CCJ against a bad tenant and can't enforce/ recover the debt because the person refuses to provide their address. The prior address was our property and the only correspondence address is her debt management company. I've looked at address tracing...

                I am a landlord. But not protecting a deposit is foolish and careless. I would go for it, I think you are entitled 1 to 3 times of the deposit so no body will go bankrupt, go for the max, can't see any excuse for not protecting a deposit. A landlord may forget to do something and a judge would be lenient...

                Hi all,

                I know there's plenty of info on what to do when deposits are not protected but I wonder what your advice would be in this particular situation?

                A friend of mine took on a rental in London last year and has given notice to vacate for end of this month. It's through...

                I'd wait until the deposits been returned.
                Unless the agent makes some unreasonable demands, in which case I'd start then.

                Your friend has six years from the deadline to protect the deposit to make a claim.

                Even if the agent is acting on behalf of a landlord, it's possible...

                My tenant was supposed to have left yesterday but she hasn't so this morning I posted my N325-eng form with the £130 for the bailiffs.

                I am expecting the court to take about three weeks to issue the warrant and four to six weeks for the bailiffs to come so about two months or so. She...

                Is the agent the named landlord on the tenancy agreement. If so, go for it. If agent is agent for some other named landlord, you will be screwing someone who has already been screwed over by the agent, so would need a good (moral) reason to want to do that....

                31 !!! Is not young, she is acting like a 15 year old, at 19 i was at war in the South Atlantic, that was young, she sounds immature and delusional.

                As said by others, forget all the updates with her and ensure you deal with her in a business like manner, she really is in for a big shock..........

                Thank you all.

                What I've understood from the replies and some searching from my side is that:

                1) The court fee (£355) and a fixed fee (about £50-£80 depending on the nature of the case) are claimable only. I'm not sure if there are any others?

                2) You would fill...
