We rent our cottage from a private landlord. The rent is paid on time and we have no arrears, we also take great care of the house. We have just been told the house is now up for sale, despite assurances of a long term rental, and having been here for only 16 months. To keep us here until it is sold, the landlord reduced the rent… Her idea not ours. The deposit we paid has not been put into a scheme either. We haven’t a clue if we have any rights and are looking for advice please.
