This clause is typically phrased similar to "the sell is a subject to this tenancy agreement" but IMHO it is irrelevant to your situation because it is rather to protect the tenant than the LL. If this clause is absent the new LL can kick you out as he is not bind by the agreement.sarasari wrote:We are quite keen on leaving our apartment which has just been sold (previous landlord passed away) and the property is in an estate.
The official date of the sale is March 1st and our lease expires on March 31st.
I've asked agents and they tell me that there should be a clause about "Selling" in my TA which would allow the new owner to keep the tenancy rights (deposit, payments, etc.).
I can't find such clauses in my TA and I'd be quite happy to leave by end of February before the new owner takes full possession.
Does anybody have any advice or any similar experience ?
Thanks in advance
I am not sure what do you mean by the above but it is simply not possible to be in any legal agreement with a dead person and this was the base of me earlier writing that IMHO your current TA is just not valid any longer. At this point you're occupying the premises without any agreement.sarasari wrote: I'm not a legal expert but unless specifically mentioned in the contract/TA, it does make sense to me that I have contractual agreement with the passed LL and the estate but not the new LL
i'll be honest. the "normal" procedure in singapore for such a scenario is for the LL (either old or new) to pay you off, not the other way.sarasari wrote:it's a shophouse
the new landlord bought three in our street, he's definitely NOT moving in...
...and I'm not sure why he would want to forfeit one month of rent...
No apparently not! In fact there is a risk to a person who gold-plates what they wish to hear and ignores the rest.sarasari wrote: I'm not a legal expert but unless specifically mentioned in the contract/TA, it does make sense to me that I have contractual agreement with the passed LL and the estate but not the new LL
