I’m selling my property. Is my landlord obliged to respond to pre-sale enquiries?

Usually the buyer’s solicitor will send questions for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so. If your landlord refuses to answer the buyer’s questions you cannot compel them to do so but you could try to negotiate with them.

If your landlord is a Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) member or part of an ombudsman scheme you may be able to submit a complaint to the relevant body.
