We have just been offered a council house to enable us to move from a private rented one so we checked our tenancy to see what sort of notice we have to give only to find it expired in june so we are actually squatters who pay rent!
We know that getting a return of our bond from our landlord is like getting blood from a stone ie. no chance but I knew that before I rented my first house from him 4 years ago (now on the second house with him) so not really bothered about that.
But as we dont have a tenancy does this mean we dont have to give notice or even pay rent for the period we get keys to new house and are overlapping whilst decorating and preparing the new house to move into (he can take it from our bond LOL).
Where do we stand legally and what would you do?
