Circumstances can change and at any time you may need to sell or move back into your property. As each tenancy agreement is different, it is essential that landlords advise us as soon as possible of any change in their situation so that the appropriate and required notice is provided to the tenant.
A periodic tenancy can be terminated so long as the correct notice is provided to the tenant. In the case of a property sale the tenant must be given 30 days written notice to vacate (allow an extra 4 days for delivery of notice) and only once the sale of the property has become unconditional. Two weeks’ notice must be given before we can advertise the property for sale. In all other cases under a periodic tenancy, the landlord must give the tenant a minimum of 90 days’ notice to terminate a periodic tenancy. No reason needs to be given to the tenant in a 90 days written notice to terminate.
A fixed term lease is guaranteed to your tenant for the term outlined in the tenancy agreement and supersedes the sale of the property or the owner of family members moving back into the property. For example, should the property be sold, and the buyer wishes to occupy the home, they may not move in until the completion of the tenancy unless the tenant agrees otherwise. The landlord must give the tenant 30 days’ notice before the end of a fixed term to terminate the lease.
