Areas of Law / Property

I bought a small holiday chalet ten years ago. The price was very reasonable, but I didn’t notice the expiry date of the lease, which is in six months’ time. The landlord has refused to renew the lease. I understand that people are entitled to renew the lease by law where they are in full-time occupation, but not otherwise. Since this is just a holiday chalet what will happen to the property when the lease expires?

Your landlord will be able to apply for possession of the property when the lease expires if you don’t move out, and your chalet will be his to sell or lease once more. If a solicitor handled the purchase you may have a claim against them for negligence if they didn’t draw your attention to this. Discuss this with them, and double-check the terms of the lease.
