Home Buying in Brooklyn>Question Details

Emily Lam, Other/Just Looking in Brooklyn, NY

I am buying a house and the offer accepted but we can't get into the agreement sheet.

Asked by Emily Lam, Brooklyn, NY Mon Apr 28, 2014

Since the owner says the tenant will continue to stay approximately for another 2 months after closing. I like the house but i dont want to keep the tenant. Is there a good way to make the tenant move right after closing ? Help Please

Help the community by answering this question:


It sounds like the owner does not want to loose the rental income while you are in contract carrying the building without the income up to the closing.
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.

It depends what kind of lease the tenant has. If the lease allows them to stay for that long then you'll need to wait. If they are on a month to month lease then you may have more options.

If the tenant has a lease then your only options are to wait til it expires or offer them money to move.
