    Your quote:
    "My landlord sold his place to a new landlord and the new landlord has said the old periodic lease with my old landlord will expire soon and wants me to sign a new fixed term lease"

    A response:
    "If it is a Periodic Contract then the minimum is 90 days for the described reason".

    My response is:
    If you are on a Periodic Contract it is the standard 90-day notice, so you need to be clear just exactly what contract you are on.

    Its a good idea to discuss this your landlord to get a clear understanding for both parties concerned and you know where you stand.

    He may be a Newbie at this, so you need to be clear about your rights - and he may be a Forumite asking of his rights as well!

    All the best to you both

    Periodic Contracts do not expire "soon".

    If it is a Periodic Contract then the minimum is 90 days for the described reason. If it is a lease which is to "expire soon" then yes, if more than 21 days away, the landlord can offer a one month fixed term contract and you can choose to accept it or move out earlier.

    I think it's 6 weeks for a major renovation.

    One month is definitely illegal.

    My landlord sold his place to a new landlord and the new landlord has said the old periodic lease with my old landlord will expire soon and wants me to sign a new fixed term lease. The new landlord gave me the new lease and I was expecting the new lease to be 6 months, 12 months but the landlord has sprung a new fixed term lease that is just for one month and wants me to to move out in month so he can renovate my place. Is this legal at all?
