Landlord being repossessed for mortgage arrears – what rights does the tenant have?Make Text Bigger
I stumbled across one of your articles outlining Squatters rights. I hoped you might be able to assist me in a current quandary I face.
I am a tenant, I have paid my landlord on time, every month, for the last 5 years. I have just discovered that he has not been paying his mortgage and my home is very likely to be repossessed in a weeks time.
If this is so, I understand that I could be faced with a 16 day minimum eviction notice. Is this right?
If this is so, I am a single mum with a 7 year old son, I couldn’t possibly organise another property in 16 days. My fear would be “squatting” until I did. However, would I still be classed as a tenant? Any light you can shed on this would be truly helpful.
