I'm in Qld... which is why I was surprised they made you move...
were you on a fixed term agreement??
the RTA says:
http://www.rta.qld.gov.au/Renting/Du...-for-sale.aspxIn a fixed agreement, the owner cannot make the tenant leave because they decide to sell the property. The tenant can stay until the end of the term, and the new owner will become the lessor.
So like it or not... we're signed here till Dec 31... *sigh or relief* at least that's school and uni holidays. So moving then is not so much of a drama.

I live in Qld. I didn't think the new owner could break a tenants lease either? That's what I was told when I was looking for a townhouse to buy, and it influenced my decision on what I purchased as I needed to move in ASAP.

Yup both the last times we had a 12 month lease. First one was broken at 5 months, second at 7 months it was just over 2 years ago now so maybe they have changed the laws ? Either way I'm crossin my fingers that you dont have to move !
From memory there is a loop hole where if the prospective buyers are purchasing as their primary residence they have the right to terminate the contract ? Maybe all just to double check ?

Back when rentals were easy to get, it was best to not renew a lease and give yourself that freedom after your initial lease ran out. However, with the current housing situation, it is best to continually renew leases and protect your residency, especially if you have children in school and thus need to limit moving to between school years so as to not disrupt their schooling.

We refused open inspections when the last house we rented was on the market. I'm not sure about other states, but in the ACT you only have to provide reasonable access to prospective buyers. That does not mean opening your home to anyone who wants to have a sticky-beak during an open inspection .
