Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Why dont you have anything in writing please?
I meant do you have anything in writing with the owner?
It's bad news then I am afraid. You have what is called a tenancy at will. This means it can be ended at any time with notice.
Sadly you do not have a claim as a tenant or interest in the land. If the owner gives you notice and you do not leave they can seek a court order.
Without any form of tenancy agreement or lease I am sorry to report that you have no right to remain.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want, nor the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?
Sadly unless anything was agreed you are not entitled to the cost of those improvements, you have a tenancy at will.
They would need to give you at least one months notice, but probably three months.
Can I clarify anything else?
Sadly not. I am sorry
Does that clarify?
Yes it needs to be written. Verbal is not sufficient.
You stay until you get written notice, even if it is sold
Yes, they can give you written notice.
Then you have to leave.
