    My landlord's agents phone me on monday to tell me that they are selling. I am currently on a 12 month contract. The payment for the very last month of the contract went through yesterday.

    Since i have not been served formal notice does that mean I have the rest of this (contract) month and then 2 month more. I believe that legally you need to give 2 months. There is no time stated in my contract, it just says that "he shall serve any notice(s) with the provisions of the Housing Acts"

    So if that is the case i have effectively 3 months more here, have i got this right?

    Good grief! What a lot of conflicting informtion! Poor OP - how will you know which posters above are talking rubbish (some of them!), and which are giving accurate advice?

    The tenancy does not end if the LL changes.

    The LL cannot evict except by first serving a S21 (or S8 if applicable) Notice, and then applying to court.

    For fuller details, read:

    * Ending/renewing an AST: what happens when a fixed term ends? How can a LL or tenant end a tenancy? What is a periodic tenancy?

    When all is said and done if you are in good terms why not just say that you are moving and ask if can you stay til you have a date? Then you can give Notice and tie up all loose ends with no hostility and less stress.
