  • Tenant's landlord's landlord

    Our landlord whom we sublet from is leaving the property in 2 weeks and has not told us to leave, how do I stand with the main property owner who technically is not our landlord. We have no written lease. Help

    Please clarify: does L live there too, or is L simply selling to someone else? What does the expression "main property owner" in your post mean?

      And if the first 'landlord' that you mention is in fact just another tenant who is sub-letting the property, was this done with the consent and knowledge of the actual landlord who owns the property? And do you have their address?

        re:help

        I will try and clarify....The property is owned by Mr a.

        This property is let out to Mr b and we let part of it from Mr b with no written agreement but have been there for 9 years. Mr b is quitting in 2 weeks and told us a day ago.

        Where does my business stand as we cannot move out easily. We have not been told to leave. Where do we stand with Mr a in all this as it is his building and he has indicated that he wishes to sell the property.

        Thanks for any help

          Who has accepted your rent - Mr B, who sublet part of the property to you, or Mr A, who owns the building and wants to sell it?

            we paid Mr b up to now. Mr a knows we are there but has not been in contact with us apart from asking if we would like to buy the property.

              Could you put it on this forum, if possible?

                'The Tenant' (all 3), can vacate at end of fixed term with no Notice. If remainers sign a new AST to commence after fixed termpref naming new joint, this sould replace original AST. Deed of Surrender is 'belt & brace'.

                Hi All, I have approached the freeholder on an informal basis to extend the lease of a flat I own as a rental. He has come up with reasonable price for the premium to extend to 125 years from now but wants to double the ground rent every 25 years (from £80 to £160 p/a initially). My solicitor has...

                I think the problem may be that they are not really 'moving out'. There is a long thread elsewhere on the forum that may be of interest. Although unresolved, it suggests that if some of them don't move out then an SPT will arise automatically for all of them. I really don't want to restart that discussion...

                The Leasehold Advisory Service has an online lease extension calculator that should give you a rough idea of the cost.

                I have an extremely anti-social and criminal tenant. My neighbours think she is possibly a sex worker and drugs abusing and dealing.

                I have experienced far more dificult cases than that from my neighbour's tenants with my front window and my flat door window cracked.

                Make an offer she cannot refuse. Carrots work better.

                Local Authorities are slow moving because shortage of housing is a problem.

                Our rented flat was broken into, in the process the Yale lock was broken and cost £100 to repair. The landlord is refusing to pay this on the basis we didn’t also lock the door with the mortice lock. We didn’t use the mortice lock as it wasn’t working although the landlord did not know this....

                Since the Yale was broken it proves the tenants took responsible measures for the security: they locked the door.
                The yale is necessary for security. It is sufficient and safe to use in case of a fire because you could get out quickly operating the lock with the thump ie you don't want to be looking...
