    Hi. I have not had a lease for 2 years. The previous landlord let us move in and repair the house for 4 weeks rent. We did this and lived here for that time. Now he has sold the house and the new landlord has made it clear we either do owner finance or move out so his brother in law moves in.

    What are our tenants rights?

    What kind of lease do you have? Is it a period lease (i.e. you pay month to month) or is it a fixed term? Also, just to double check, is it a residential lease?

    Hi dan,

    If you do not have a fixed term lease agreement then you will only have what is called a periodic lease. In these circumstances, the new landlord of your property can give you a Notice to leave (Form 12). They must give you at least 4 weeks’ notice from the signing of the contract of sale to leave the premises.

    If you have further specific questions about your circumstances you can contact the Queensland Residential Tenancies Authority.
