What happens if my landlord wants to sell the property?

If the landlord is going to sell the property you are renting and requires vacant possession at the end of the lease, they can ask you to leave within 60 days, via a Notice to vacate.

If you don't leave within 60 days of receiving a valid Notice to vacate, the landlord can apply for a possession order from the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT).

However, if you have a fixed term lease, they cannot require you to leave before the end date.

As Victoria's consumer affairs regulator, we help landlords, agents and tenants understand their rights and responsibilities.
