Renting With No Lease in Place

Hi all,

Not sure where I stand with this. My partner and I have rented a property from an In-Law for over 5+ years. There was only an agreement verbally for the rent that had to be paid monthly. This had been paid month on month with no issues.

Due to an argument with the In-law, they have threatened with selling the property. I understand that is their rite to do so. We have no lease to speak of and the In-law is not a registered landlord.

Where do I stand ? i.e evocation , length of notice ect, ect ?

Hi there, I think that if you have sole use of the property and are not staying with the landlord it would be considered to be an assured tenancy.https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://scotland.shelter.org.uk/get_advice/advice_topics/renting_rights/renting_from_a_private_landlord/assured_tenancies&ved=2ahUKEwiBgo-y4ffjAhUZRxUIHX6mCfcQFjAAegQIBRAB&usg=AOvVaw0iTuMIjNfvvV4cstbGa8n6

Are you paying rent every month to live there?
