Some advice needed from the more expierienced heads on here.
After selling our house three years ago (phew!!) we have been renting a lovely house ever since.
We have had three fixed term contracts for a year a piece - the current one expires on 01 OCT 2011 - meaning we have 33 months continuous tenancy.
Recently the landlord tried to serve me with 30 days notice to vacate despite the fact that we have been there almost three years.
He claims that because the lease has a clause saying 30 days that he doesnt have to abide by the statutory 56 days.
Following legal advice I have been informed that I am governed by the RTA 2004 and not the lease and that I am entitled to the legal notice period of 56 days.
The landlord disputes this and wants us out on the 31st Day to move a family member in.
I just wanted to know if anyone could advise on the following;
If I lodge a dispute with the PRTB does the landlord have any right to come near the property or does he have to wait until the PRTB decision is made. Obviously if he requests a visit I will accomodate him but I am concerned about him showing up the day after his invalid notice period expires.
All advice is gratefully received
