Needless to say that I'm currently devestated (found out his intentions last night); I love my little flat, and this is the first place that I have really felt secure and turned into a home - prior to this, I was flats haring in furnished properties, I live alone here and everything in it is mine. It's a one bed (selling at a surprisingly large amount), so it will probably be a choice of first time buyers, or a buy to let. The former would mean having to find somewhere else. It would take a few months etc to go through, but I still need the hassle of looking (on top of my new bl**day job and added responsibilities in January!), but I'll to take three cats with me. Not to mention the cost of moving etc. I should get a full deposit back from this place, but naturally I won't receive that until after I move out, so will need to get together a deposit and agency fees etc. The second will hopefully let me stay. In fact, my landlord has informed me that a couple of investors have already enquired and are keen to keep a current reliable tenant, rather than the hassle and cost of having to find one themselves, and this way they can start earning money on the same day they invest. I've never had an issue with my landlord, and he assures me that I'll be highly recommended whether it be a future landlord here, or elsewhere. I'm praying that one of these investors offer a good price, but at the moment I'm still uncertain about what will happen, and still in shock - my landlord had always told me that this was a long term investment to boost his pension, and so this has come completely out of the blue. I've been wanting to cry all day at work (on top of crying last night), and whilst managed to hold on during my lessons, did cry twice to a colleague (once when she closed her office door, during my free period, and the other after school). I'm now sitting on my living room floor crying again. I know this is what happens in renting (I'm one of those on a good wage, but no deposit available for a mortgage), and to be fair, my landlord is being as helpful as he can. But a couple of days ago, I was happy and secure and looking forward to Christmas, and then a new start in a new job. Now the security of my home has been stripped from me, and I am completely helpless - I have no say on who decides to buy the property, and what offer landlord decides to accept. To top it all, I have people viewing tomorrow, and potentially strangers walking through my home over my Christmas break. F**king great. I intend to be here for as many viewings as possible though, so an investor can see how lovely and charming I am. Sorry for the long post, but I just needed to get it out as I sat here and cried. Now I need to go and pretty the place (see, I'm an excellent tenant!) for tomorrow. Sucks that I'm going to have to sell myself, as much as the place itself.
