Worried about eviction

Our ex boss rented a property in his name as part of our renumeration, he pays all the rent and bills but we live in the house, we have had a fall out and left our jobs but now he is asking for the keys back to the property and we have nowhere to go at the moment, do we have to be out straight away?

  • Everything should be in writing, and no you can't be evicted right away there is normally a period, dont let him bully you out as he can't good luck

  • Hi, We would suggest you speak to a solicitor as soon as possible about this matter as it does sound a little iffy in the first place that your boss has done it this way. If you have anything in writing stating any agreement then this would be great to show to the solicitor to get a further background into the situation. We hope this helps.

  • Hi EdgarJay, This will all boil down really to whether or not you have a tenancy agreement in place with your boss, who is essentially your landlord in this instance. If you do, then he will have to give you two months notice from your next rental payment date (even if it is not you who is paying), unless there is a caveat on the agreement. If you do not have an agreement in place, then the best thing to do is either talk to your former boss or Citizens Advice. It is unreasonable to expect someone to move out straight away, and you will have a case for not having to move out without any notice either way. Many thanks, Scott
