If the owner gave the tenant notice now, they may well leave before you have closed, leaving the seller carrying an extra monthly expense.
This is all part of the brokers job to negotiate that each side is comfortable and coming up with solutions to take care of both.
Or maybe the tenant has kids in school that they do not want to move until the end of the school year?
Find out the reason and you will find a solution, it maybe that you become comfortable with the tenant staying a short while after the closing...they will certainly pay some of your expenses while you get your plans in line, right after a closing. Two months in the scheme of things is not very long.
