Hello and thank you for your question. I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practicing lawyer in England with over 10 years experience.
for the avoidance of doubt, Mary clarify whether the new five-year tenancy agreement was actually signed prior or after the sale or whether it is not been signed at all please?
*May I clarify...
If it has not been signed do you have a copy of the draft and have you started to pay the higher rent specified in it?
I believe I understand correctly from what you say that the new 5 year AST was signed by the original landlord before sale and this being the case I assume you have a copy of the signed agreement?
Would you like to continue with this?
