Not quite.Breezy_KT wrote:I've tried to move out earlier than the whole process gets settled like when I find the right place to move in. and when I talked about this to the landlord's agent and he said legally I can't move out as I wish because I'm tied up with the contract - when it's them who cannot guarantee my tenancy period. Is this true?
I'd be interested to hear what Grounds they believe they have that would enable to terminate you. Have you asked them?Breezy_KT wrote:I can't get the law, since it's them who are going to terminate the contract and not to compensate me for any (according to my contract).
As above, I don't think any of the terms in your TA have altered at all.Breezy_KT wrote:I thought it would be my right to decide when to move out when the breaking party is the owner.
No need to 'go legal'. If he threatens to terminate you, just ask him to quote the legal basis on which he is intending to do so (a perfectly reasonable request), and then take it from there. I.e. don't accept any vague statement from him, and then spend a week trying to decipher/prove/disprove it, get him to explain clearly in black and white why what he claims is true.Breezy_KT wrote:If you happen to encounter a case like mine, please let me know and advise!!!

Thank you so much for your time!!!
Exactly - if anything you're rights to stay on a pretty much set in stone UNLESS there is a clause that says you have to move out if the property is sold.... reassignment is assumed.JR8 wrote:* I'd expect people viewing the property to ask you what your status is.

[side-comment, but don't let it distract you: - Maybe if your landlord (old or new) really wants to move you out, then he can pay you some $costs+compensation for breaking your TA?].
Good luck, let us know how it goes.
