Recent Landlord Visit

Recommended Posts

Recently had my landlord visit with two suits who looked like estate agents if I ever saw a pair who started taking measurements and pictures. I asked what for and thy just brushed me off.

I spoke to another tenant and she was told it was for remortgaging but obviously I'm worried the property is being sold. Is it normal practice for measurements and pictures to be taken for remortgaging? If it's being sold at what point do they have to inform me?

I don't know about the remortgaging situation or when they have to tell you but I would keep an eye on Rightmove "for sale" properties in your area and see if it appears. Don't panic though because some places take ages (years) to sell. Also they would have to liaise with you for viewings.

Don't know where you are or your situation but if you were able to buy it yourself you might get a bargain as there would be a lot less hassle for the LL to sell it to you.

It's a block of flats own by the same person so I assume it'll be sold as a whole. Will set up a rightmove alert just in case. Didn't even receive written notice. Pretty sure I'm just renter scum to them. Still thanks guys, least I know it's normal now for a re-mortgage.

Seems a lot of landlords are up to this at the moment; mine asked if they could drill out the locks on the individual tenant doors before an inspection. Not sure why, I presume something to do with trying to make out they still live here and is a family house. I'll send them a condolence card when the market crashes :D
