    No i've done nothing. Rent has always been paid 2 weeks in advance and there have been no problems during property inspections. The only thing they would have against me is the fact that i stood up for myself by asking for a written agreement when it came to sales inspections as the sales agent was chopping and changing times and showing up whenever he felt like it.

    You don't know the new owner's circumstances either, they could be moving from a rental or have already organised their move and if you just stay on, you could be putting someone else in the same situation that you are in.
    The new owner is all of maybe 20? Her parents are buying her the place and renovating it before she moves in. So she doesn't face the same desperation and risk of homelessness that we do.

    If you are at risk of being homeless, offer to give them access to do the renovations while you are looking for a place. It will buy you time and give them what they want too. Sure, you'll be living in a mess but that must be better than being homeless.

    That is a brilliant idea!

    Good luck OP, I can't imagine how stressful this must be.

    thats a great idea. or you could just tell them of your situation, if they aren't in a rush to move in, they might be sympathetic and give you a month or so?

    I'd really try this.

    If all else fails you can go to the department of housing and they can give you emergency housing in a hotel/motel week to week for free while you search like mad for a rental. The boys and I had to do this a year ago, was the worst feeling but at least we had a roof of some sort. I do remember though that you have to be without somewhere to go the day you go in. If it looks like it will come down to that maybe put all your stuff into storage (like I had to) clear out and go see DOH the day you've got no lease left.

    There are also women's refuges, other community based housing option in most areas. Even if you ring around these places they could point you in a good direction of someone/somewhere that can help find you housing in your price range.

    Default When you get kicked out of a rental..

    Don't let them in to do renovations while you are living there! It will be a legal nightmare!
    If they are just renovating try writing a letter asking for a few more weeks and you will pay the rent to them and allow access while your there to get quotes/measure up etc

    Was it much trouble for you to get help from DOH? I spent 6 months homeless when i first left my ex and DOH, community rent schemes, SAAP accommodation providers and emergency housing providers wouldn't offer any assistance apart from putting me on the waitlist.
    I tried applying for DOH here a while ago but they rejected my application. Might give it another go for what it's worth.
