    I am interested in renting a property where the owner has made it clear that she may need to live in it herself in a few years’ time. I understand that usually a rental contract is for five years. Can we be ‘evicted’ if the owner would like to live in it before that time is up?

    if you take a property for 12 months, you have the right after the contract is up to stay in the property a further 4 years (for a total of 5) by law. As long as you are paying your bills you cannot be removed. As most landlords understandably do not want a 1 year rental to turn into a 5 year rental without their permission, some right clauses into the contract stating that the property will become their main residence in X time.

    If you do want to rent it for 5 years, tell her that is what you want to do.

    Thank you Fuengi! So by this I understand that there is no standard clause, as is the case in a couple of countries at least, that the owner has the right to ask you to leave at any time if he needs to live in the property himself.
