Alex Watts :
Is your contract with the Landlord I assume? I also assume he has gone into administration or something please?
Yes to both your questions
Alex Watts : It's bad news then I am sorry to say.
Alex Watts : Your contract is with the landlord, they have gone into administration
Alex Watts : Your agreement has therefore technically ended. You no longer have a contract.
Alex Watts : Therefore the administrator is allowed to sell the property.
Alex Watts : However if and when that time comes you can apply to the courts for a stay of eviction and the law says you are entitled to 2. I this notice.
Alex Watts : But the agreement can be ended early, because it no longer exists. Your contract is with the landlord and he is no lo get dealing with his affairs.
Alex Watts : Sadly you can buy yourself some time but you may have to leave early.
Alex Watts : I am sorry that this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Alex Watts : Of course the administrator may want to keep someone in who is paying and any new landlord may want a sitting tenant, so speak to them first.
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
How "much time would that by me
Alex Watts : 2 months at the very most.
Alex Watts : From the time they asked you to leave.
Alex Watts : Does that help?
