Hello Robert,

The current contract is between you and the Landlord – so if the Landlord has died, and you say the new owner is selling, I think you need to find out first if the new seller intends to carry on renting it out? They may be wanting to live in it themself? 


Hi Robert

The death of the landlord will not end the tenancy – instead, whoever ends up owning the property will be bound by it as if they were the landlord. This means that you’re entitled to stay in the property but also means you need to give the proper notice at the right time to leave. You might find (as mentioned above) that the new owners of the property don’t want to be landlords in which case you can ask them to agree in writing to surrender the tenancy on a date that you both agree and that will release you.
