    Default Tenants question

    I just gave notice to our tenants (2 months early) because they are great tenants and thought that was nice!

    She's asked for longer 😳 we want to move back into the house. Should I let her have longer. My guilt trip side says yes but we are living in MILS lounge. :/

    No. You've already given them 2 months! That's loads of notice.

    Actually, did they say how much longer?

    If they asked for an extension of a few weeks/ month because they were waiting on a house to settle (they've bought somewhere) I would maybe agree.

    I think 2 months is very fair notice and more than enough time to find a new place.

    If she said something like 'can we do 10 weeks instead as we are building a house and that's the completion date' or something like that I would be flexible. Otherwise you need to put your family first!

    No way! Just because she wants to buy In 12 months, doesn't mean it will happen! Either way, you normally sign a lease for 12 months, so her request is more because she can't be bothered/ doesn't want to move than she needs to stay a bit longer.

    Definitely don't let her guilt trip you. That comes with the territory when renting. I agree with a previous poster if she needed a few extra weeks because of xyz reason different story but not 12 months!! For that she can safely lease somewhere else for the period

    Jeebus 12 months??? Umm no sorry. There's no guarantee she would be able to buy in exactly 12 months. Even if there was - that's way too long.

    Write a great recommendation for them if it'll help you feel better

    When we were given notice by our landlord we asked for an extra week and felt guilty about it. No way would I say "I want another year here". Not her house, not her decision. You need to put your family first.

    Nope I wouldn't be THAT flexible!
    Agree with others, a couple of weeks, sure. But a year! No way.
