Tenant may refuse to move due to Covid-19?

Thanks for the replies. Just to provide an update the tenants have agreed to move out 31st July which we have in writing but the issue now is the buyer who may feel two months is too long. Possibly issues with mortgage extension but I think most mortgage providers in the current crisis are being quite flexible ?... Read More

Thanks for the link. Yes we gave the notice pre-covid-19 but then told them to stay until this is over. Now the buyer is ready we are now concerned not just from our point of view but the buyers too who would have invested a lot of time and money already. It will be awful if this deal falls just because one of the tenant refuses to move because of Covid-19. Though I can understand the tenants concern as well if he does have severe Asthma (which we need to find out). I suppose in the same situation I would not move either. It maybe the case to see if the buyer can wait little longer until Covid-19 settles down.... Read More

In hindsight we should have taken steps to get the house vacated before selling. I don't like the idea of paying the tenants to move out but may have no choice.

Anyway, so far they have been very helpful and while they prefer to stay they did no object to move out when we had a meeting pre-covid-19 as long as they did not pay more at the new property (which has been refurbished recently). My biggest concern is the third tenant who has Asthma. Previously he had no issues in moving and out of the three was more keen to move. Not any compensation may not be enough as he seems to be worried about Covid-19. I don't know if he has received a letter from the government to self isolate. He is young guy in this thirties and seems healthy.... Read More

He said that his employer is still paying him. I don't think he is on Furlough. He said he needs to self isolate until July. Would the government send a letter informing him that he should self isolate for three months ?... Read More
