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 as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
You can apply to the Court to stay in the property but the Court can only grant this for up to 6 months
But you need to make an application to the Court using form N244
But you can only get yourself 2 months, not longer
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
I was just wondering would the tenant be within their rights to just leave now if they wanted due to the circumstances
Only if there were a Court order for possession.
Not the threat because the Landlord could clear the arrears or come to an agreement with the lender.
ok great thanks, XXXXX XXXXX if possession is granted for date x would they then have to pay rent up to that date ?
and not leave before
Yes you would.
