Hi all just after a little help on our current situation- We moved into a rental October last year in Sydney and were assured it would be a long term lease as we didn't want to move again so soon, unfortunately they changed their minds and have decided to sell the house. It is now under contract and I would like to confirm where we stand as to leaving the property, our lease is not up until October, I understand we are entitled to stay until then with the new owners but if we can leave prior to that without facing penalty it may be a better option as we could start looking for the the right place as of now. From what I have read it appears that if the house is sold during tenancy the tenants have the right to vacate with 14 days notice at no extra charge. However if the landlord gives notice (3 months) prior to end of lease date, we are required to pay up until the end of lease date regardless it we still live there or not? So, does that mean we can give 14 days notice up until the new owners give us notice then we are required to pay until end of lease? Or our 14 days notice remains valid until we eventually vacate? It's such a long and hard process finding a suitable home, especially in Sydney, so would be great if we had the option to wait for the right place rather than timing it with end of lease. It's times like this I question my choice to be a rentvestor! Thanks for your help!
