Im happy to stay on in the property however im not happy to pay my old landlord rent to mid January if contracts are exchanged before then I.e before the christmas break I.e Dec 18th or even earlier.
Is the old landlord entitled to charge me rent when she no longer owns the house?
I would imagine the new landlord (only)has that right
Is my old landlord effectively breaking section 21 of the housing act?
If contracts are exchanged abd the house is sold how can I be paying her rent for a further 3 weeks?
Surely I can only pay the new owner rent based on a new tenant agreement that will be put in place as of tge date of exchange ?
The tenancy agreement is not being transferred.
Therefore once contracts are signed the old owner is no longer my landlord? The new property owner is setting up a new tenancy agree ment from the date of house exchange. I would effectively be doubling up on 3 weeks rent to old and new landlord.
That doesnt seem legal?
There is an overlap between my section 21 , two month notice period and the property tranfering from old to new owner? Does this in itself not break our tenancy agreement?
At this point am I obliged to pay the rent to the old owner after property contracts are exchanged to the new owner
Im not too fussed on following up further on a broken tenancy agreement as I would rather just cut ties but im not agreeable to pay any rent to a landlord who has served my 2 months notice during which the sale could easily go through very quickly?
