i just wondered if anyone had any advice on this…. We moved into our rental property in July & the landlady continually mentioned how she’d like us to be long term tenants. We paid 6 months up front & said we’d renew contract in Jan 2016. The Landlady visited at the weekend & asked if we wanted to extend contract & when we said yes, she said ‘great news, please put it in writing’. So we did yesterday & I received an email this morning stating she’d now just decided to sell the property & we’d be served with a section 21 shortly. This is a huge shock, seeing as we are in the run up to Xmas, we have 2 small dogs (which many landlords needlessly ban) & the chances of finding a suitable property that accepts dogs & is available dead on mid Jan are worrying! So we asked Landlady if she’d release us from c/t early should we find a property avail that requires us to move in before Jan & she said no, we must pay to end of c/t. We are being evicted thru no fault of our own at the worst time of year to source a new property & feel she’s being very unreasonable. Anyone have any legal knowledge as to how we could get round this & get out of contract early?
