Good morning everyone, I’m a landlord of a few years standing, with a few properties with mostly OK experiences, but in this instance I’m writing on behalf of a friend who is a tenant in a property that is being sold.
She is a good tenant, always pays on time, is on benefit and in my eyes does amazingly well as a single mother bringing up two teenage boys on her own and is incredibly house proud, looking after the property well.
She was very accommodating during viewings, and actually met the buyer, who seemed keen to keep her as a valued tenant, which was a relief as she didn’t want to move house.
She hasn’t been kept abreast of proceedings until last night when the agent phoned her out of the blue to say the sale of the property is completing on Friday, and that she had probably paid her rent to the “wrong” owner. She paid a month in advance on 1 November as required by current contract. She has no knowledge of how her contract and/or rent is to be managed during the sale. I wasn’t able to give much help, other than to say if rent has already been paid the sale completion statement should probably reflect a balance due to new owner reflecting approx 3 weeks rent.
She can ill afford to pay rent again for same period. Can anyone offer any help, or advise what the correct procedure should be?
Many thanks in advance
