In the process of buying a house ("corporate sale") and assuming that nothing goes wrong, been told an offer has been rejected as we are so far through the process so hopeful nothing will, touch wood, cross fingers etc etc...
We are currently paying rent for the house through one agent and buying the same house through a second agent.
How does the rent work? The owners are asking for completion next week, which should be ok, but it does put us into a new rental period.
Our rental contract states 1 months notice???
But in a month we will be owning the property? so that would make us the landlord and the tenant, which is just stupid!
If i cancel the rent standing order now i am in breach of anything, does it matter?
I have spoken to the renting agent and they weren't aware of our offer and weren't sure what to do.
I don't want to pay a months rent and then claim back etc.
I don't want to be in breach of anything that could be used against me,
Then there is the rental deposit to get back as well....
Wondering if anyone in STW land had come across this situation before and had any advice.
