What would the 118 community advice in this situation?
My niece, single mum with a 2 year old child, has been renting a 2 bed flat for 2 years via a letting agency. She’s always paid her rent on time and the flat is spotless.
A few days ago she received a letter from lenders solicitors, addressed to her landlord and the ‘current occupier’, giving them a one month eviction date, as the landlord is in mortgage arrears.
Does anybody know what rights has she got in those circumstances?
She is appealing to the lender to give her longer time to find somewhere else to live, but according to the letter, the maximum statutory extension is only two month. We are worried that even two months won’t be enough as it will fall just before Christmas!
She is actually interested in purchasing the flat – the flat was on the market last year, and she made an offer, but the agency selling it didn’t even come back with the vendor’s reply!
Is it now too late to buy this flat?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
