Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return You do not need to wait here as you will get an email when I reply.
Do you know what type of tenancy agreement you have please?
Its bad news I am afraid. Assured Shorthold Tenancies started in 1997
If you only have a verbal agreement then sadly your rights are limited/.
The Landlord is able to give you notice but this must be a minimum of 2 months
Sadly you can't stop the Landlord giving notice and if he wants you to move then all he needs to do is give 2 months
If you had an agreement in writing with a fixed period, you may have had longer
I am sorry if 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
But try asking the landlord to market it with a sitting tenant, someone else may want to buy it with you there
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
