Quote from: goodfella on January 22, 2024, 06:28:45 PMThe big deal is that I need to move out of the current rented property as the landlord sold the house. The agency(LL) already served me the 21 notice, so I have less than 2 months to move into my new house.

They were foolish to sell it while you are still their tenant.You are not obliged to move out by the Section 21 date. Just site tight and keep paying the rent. The agency & landlord can do nothing to remove you unless they apply for court which takes many months.The alternative approach is that your landlord might offer you money to move out, i.e. payment to get you out when they want the property and for the inconvenience they are causing you. The amount will be a point of negotiation if you choose to do this.You hold all the power here. Don't let the landlord or agent bully you.

You can't really speed up a house purchase without cutting down on the checks you need to make and you shouldn't do that (and if you're taking out a mortgage you can't).Apologise to the agent, but it will take them as long a time to process the sale as it will for you to buy, in reality. Agree that when you know your completion date you'll agree a surrender on that day, otherwise you'll end up paying rent after you move out, because you'll need to give notice.
