Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
You need to check the tenancy agreement. But generally yes. This is because if there is going to be a redevelopment they have to apply to Court to evict you.
One of the grounds for eviction is indeed redevelopment. I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want tom give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
