Owner selling flat what happens to contract?

Just moved into a new flat with a 2 year contract and owner says he is selling unit less than 90 days after moving in.

What are my rights/options? I believe he will have to buy out my contract and reimburse costs. Just paid 12k CHF for the removal.

Re: Owner selling flat what happens to contract?

read you contract, it will say what notice they have to give you, the buyer takes over the contract, usually they can give you notice on 2 days of the year (and you to them).

We had the same thing happen to us, new owner wanted to live in the house so gave us notice (which I believe is totally legal for a new owner to do regardless of your contract)

buy you out? good luck with that!

Compensation? good luck with that too!!

I have no idea where the law really stands, our contract said they could give us notice on xx day, they did, we found somewhere else before the notice period ended and they let us leave early.

Selling a place usually takes a loooooong time anyway, the house we rented was on the market for well over a year before it sold, then we had almost 6 months notice the new owner wanted us out, so I wouldn't worry too much about it just yet.

ETA 12k removal?? where the hell did you come from? I assume overseas? so you want the buyer to pay for you to move back?

Our rental flat changed owners and the contract remained.
