    landlord sold house im living in help

    hey guys

    just wondering if you can help
    im living in a 2 bed house with my other half and my little boy we moved here last july
    my landlord put it up for sale in oct 09 and has now just sold the house my deposit is in a goverment scheme and he has issued the correct notice of 2 months.
    we had a meeting at the local council as my one wage for all of us isnt enought to get a mortage or go through estate agents on rented accomadation and private ones are really rare in my area.
    i was told that after the 2 months if we are not out my landlord has to take me to court and then 6 weeks after that the bayliffs get involved if we are not out this is what the council told me
    but i heard if im not out after the 2months and he loses the sale of the house he can charge me or sue me for damages and costs.
    i have another meeting with the council and just wondered if there was any info i can show them then they can help us because i dont want a backlash from this.

    any help would be great

    thanks

    Your asserting your lawful tenancy rights does not give L any power to claim damages/costs against you.
    From where have you 'heard' this dubious nonsense?

      I agree, but in the end you cannot stay there indefinitely. Perhaps it would be worth asking for an interview with the Tenancy Officer or the LHA people at your council? They may be able to help, especially if you are a single parent.

        Though you'll still be liable for the LL's costs associated with the court hearing and bailliffs, should you decide not to leave when requested.
