Sale of Premises - Notice of intention to sell

< Back to list

The ‘standard terms’ are part of the RTA and form the basis of your agreement. They set out general access guidelines.

They specify that the landlord (or their agent) cannot enter your home except in accordance with the guidelines. Clause 81 talks specifically about access for interested or potential purchasers. It stipulates that access is only possible if the landlord intends to sell the premises and you have been previously notified in writing of their intention to sell.

If you have not received notice in writing you are able to refuse access until the written notice is received. Once notice has been received, you must permit reasonable access, if the landlord or agent has given you 24 hours notice.
