    Same form is suitable for all circumstances including a recent purchase.

    thank you – is there any need to assign the previous owner/landlords tenancy agreement over to the new owner landlord or does the new owner have the right to issue possession proceedings in his name based on proof of ownership

    • guildy

      No, the section 48 effectively takes care of it. The tenant remains protected (and remains a tenant) as the statue moves the tenancy to the new owner. The section 48 is required to provide details of that new landlord.

    Great – thank you for the reassuring information!
