I have received a letter from my landlord, giving me notice of his intention to sell the property where I live. He has given me 2 month’s notice from date of sale. Am I entitled to any compensation? And are there any other points that would be helpful?


Hi Mary

When did you move in? If you’re still within the fixed term of the tenancy (normally the first six months) then the tenancy doesn’t normally allow the landlord to remove you. Have a look at your tenancy and see what it says about the fixed term. You could well be entitled to compensation during that time.

It might be an idea to get some advice from Shelter or Citizens Advice – they should be able to help you manage the process of moving and advise you on the legal position in terms of compensation.
