Customer Question
Hello, we have been given notice...
Hello,
we have been given notice by our landlord after one year (tenancy agreement of two years) on the reason that he wants to move back. It turns out now that we are looking for another flat, that we have been offered the flat we are still currently living in! Is it legal for a landlord to rent his flat when he mentioned he was getting it back to live in it?
Many thanks
