Just after some advice, we live in a new-ish build which of course was built in a week or so and using cheap materials means that the ventilation is awful in bathrooms with no windows. We use the fans every time we have a shower but the mould still grew. Add to the fact there's 2 en suites in this little flat.

 

Long story short, the LL has told us we need to move out as work will take around 2 months. Our tenancy is 6 months until January and we're just wondering where we stand in terms of finding a new place. What if we can't find a place within the time they serve the 2 months notice (I hear 2 months written by the LL is the usual way)

 

Thank you.

yes two months notice is the minimum the LL needs to give, but that is just a notice for repossession.

You do not have leave then until he obtains a court order, which can take a few weeks more. However eventually you will have to move and don't want to wit until the bailiffs turn up.

So suggest you start looking now, and if you find one, you can negotiate leaving early, so you wont pay the rent until the end of your contract.

The LL has been decent so far they've said work will most likely take place start of December and after making this thread and just reading your comments, It's probably in my best interests to start looking and leave without a fuss, plus I'd rather get a place just before xmas, than after, eeek.

 

Thanks again.

Basically, if LL wants you to vacate to effect nec repairs he has a duty to provide equiv, alt temp accom. Provided you continue to pay current rent whilst in temp accom, current AST continues.

good luck finding somewhere, but you do not have to leave.

he cannot start work or make you move out until your contract ends, so the December start date for work is a bit premature on his part.

As M51 says he can offer alternative accommodation ( which you do not have to accept ); if he does want to start in December,you will be in a strong negotiating position; paying all your expenses plus an incentive.
