Our letting agents gave our tenant the required 2 months notice as we want to sell the property. She found another suitable rental property and asked to move out early, after 1 month.
We agreed and she contracted to move out after 1 month. The property is due to be listed for sale with vacant possession on the date she gave us. There are less than 2 weeks to go, and she is now saying she might need the whole 2 months as she is sick. We don’t know if this is true.
Having given us notice to move out after 1 month, does she have any rights at all to then extend to the 2 months? Should she legally honour the date she gave us and move out on that date?
If she is sick, we are not saying we would force her to move, but would like to know if she is legally entitled to change her mind and we have to give her the extra month, or if it would be totally at out discretion and we would be doing her a big favour.
If we did this, are there pitfalls we haven’t thought about?
Thank you for your help.
