Would you guys mind giving me a landlords perspective on a tenancy problem my ex wife is experiencing at the moment?
She and my son have been tenants in a property for just over 3 years. There are no arrears and not one payment has ever been late.
The landlord now wants to sell the property and has served notice to end the tenancy agreement. That’s fair enough and we understand. However, we have asked the agreement end 2 months later than stated to allow my son to finish his A levels and then they will move out, which was always the intention anyway.
The agent at first told my ex she could stay if she paid an extra £100 per month, which she asked they reconsider as this was blackmail. She did not refuse, just asked them to reconsider.
They then told her the end of agreement must stay.
The property does not have a buyer yet, my ex makes sure the place is tidy when viewers are due, yet the agent at least, still says they must move out as stated.
She doesn’t want to refuse to move out and force him into legal proceedings and is also willing to continue paying the rent for the extra 2 months, but he seems to want to force her into staying put and he then has to take legal action with the resultant time and costs involved.
What do you think she should do?
