Hello I am a solicitor wth over 15 years experience. I will try to help you with this. Does your landlord accept that you are a protected tenant.
yes. they also state in their offer letter that they are otherwise willing to let the tenancy run under its present arrangement.
they also use the term 'until vacant is achieved' when mentioning that they will maintain the tenancy
I am busy this morning but will answer later today.
I am still awaiting answer
The usual starting point for an offer of payment to a tenant in your situation is the difference between the value of the property with you in it and the value with you not in it. You will need to check with a local estate agent but I suspect that this will be a higher figure than £74,500.00.
Until vacant is achieved essentially means when you become too ill or infirm to live there or die.
If you follow this link you will see that it is very difficult for your landlord to get possession of the property http://england.shelter.org.uk/get_advice/private_renting/private_renting_agreements/regulated_tenancies
