Hi
I have a house rented in a midland town to a tenant.
If i want to end the tenancy does it have to be in order to sell or move in?
If it's to sell and I provide 4 months notice and tenant moves out earlier than expected am I allowed to change my mind and not sell and rent at whatever rent I wish to charge( current rent 30% below market levels)
Thanks

The RTB website has some guidance, but regulations around ending a tenancy are the same within or outside the RPZs.

Changing your mind could be problematic, you need to make a statutory declaration that you will follow through with the sale. Why not just increase the rent?

You have to make a statutory declaration that you intend to sell, and you would have to advertise it as being for sale in due course.

Whether you accept what offers come your way is your business I guess.

Thanks guys
I did a stat declaration a month ago
If my personal circumstances change between signing it and proposed date to put house on market and I decide not to sell and my tenant has moved out( she’s moving next week) is there a problem
With me re-renting to someone else?

See this previous thread.

If you let it again without even putting it on the market for a time, you open yourself up to action unless the change in your circumstances is real and significant. If you're looking to re-let it immediately or shortly after the previous tenant has moved out, the RTB are unlikely to take a sympathetic view. It's up to 3 months in prison for making a false statutory declaration!
