Rental rights - Vaud

Hi all,
Iím hoping someone on here can help me out.

We have just found out our landlord wants to sell the house we are currently renting. He informed us 10 days AFTER the cut off date for notice to terminate the contract.
So what I need to know is can we move out if we give notice to him as he is selling the house within the next contract term or will he be able to sell the house with us staying out and the new buyers will have to honour our contract?

We are in Vaud if this makes any difference.

T.I.A x

You can certainly give notice to your landlord any time you want to, but you will have to stick to the notice period specified in your rental contract.

Does your landlord want you to move out? Does he think the new owners will want you to vacate the place? Do you want to leave? Perhaps you and your landlord could come to an agreement about an end date that is different from what the contract says, since his selling the house might be an unusual circumstance.

I'm not sure about this part of your post:

as there is no cut-off date. There is always a later, i.e. next date by which, once again, notice can be given by either party.

Re: Rental rights - Vaud

Sale doesn't break existing rentals, buyers will inherit your existing contract. But you should take note on when the ownership changes to avoid paying rent to the wrong party

If you ask nicely and the landlord agrees, you can terminate on any date you both want without notice. Notice is only for unilateral cancellation. If we're talking about a property desirable for owner occupation e.g. single-family house, rather than pure 100% income property (tiny cramped flats), selling it as unrented should fetch a bit higher price on the market as it eliminates legal risks for the new buyer involved in kicking out the existing tenant. So it's likely you would be able to work something out with your landlord in this case.
