  • If the rental property is sold, stop the landlord from ending the tenancy agreement unless the purchased wants to tlive in the property themselvs or wantes to change the use of the property.
  • If the property is sold, allow the landlord to end the tenancy agreement, but increase the notice period from 30 to 60 days.
