  • Landlords do not have to inform tenants that the property is also for sale. I wouldn't let it put you off unless you are looking for a long let. Lots of people trying to sell their homes are now trying to let them as an alternative due to the slow moving sales market. If you were to take a property that was also on the market for sale then you would not need to allow access for viewings, as an assured shorthold tenancy agreement (the most common agreement used) grants you exclusive possession.

  • Agree with the answer above. The landlord, by law, does not have to inform the tenant that the property is for sale. The landlord would however need to inform you about viewings etc, as it should be in your tenancy agreement.
