It sometimes happens that rented property changes hands with a tenant in situ. In these cases it must be remembered that the existing tenancy agreement is still enforceable it is merely a replacement of landlord which has taken place. It is not necessary to issue a new tenancy agreement. However, you must give notice to the tenant that you have purchased the property and are now his landlord. Also, notice must be given under Section 48 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987, giving an address in England or Wales at which notices may be served on the landlord, otherwise rent is not lawfully due to you as landlord, and you may not be able to enforce Section 8 and 21 notices for re-possession. If you send any notices or court claims, these should give your name as the landlord.
