    I want to sell the house I'm renting

    I'm wanting to sell the house that I rent out. My tenant is 3 months into the six month ast agreement. Can I put the Notice to Quit in a letter or do I have to go down the Section 21 route?

    You can sell today with tenant still there. New owner becomes her landlord.

    NTQ from you will have no legal effect.

    s21 cannot be issued until 4 months into fixed term.

    Was deposit protected & PI served with 30 days of payment? Have "How to rent" booklet, GSC & EPC been served on tenant (served, not you happen to have them somewhere..)

    If no to any then any s21 would be invalid.

    Nothing to stop you agreeing an early surrender with tenant: Maybe money being involved.
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

      You can't serve notice before the first four months of the AST. Assuming all your paper work to do with the deposit protection is correct, serve notice in the new year.

        Call me annoying if you like,

        But your title should have read

        I want to sell the house I'm Letting.


        I am renting a house, I pay the rent, but
        I cannot sell the house I'm renting. ( it's not mine to sell )

        Two words to try not to confuse / flip, are Renting and Letting.
        It saves confusion on here.

          Yeah, made me think for a second since when did tenants get the right to sell the property!!
          Any advice I give is my opinion and experience, I am as you also learning.

            When landlord has left land registry details with his address as the property. Tenants set up false ID, sell or remortgage the place, loads of lovely money....

            (Think it has happened....)
