I am also interested in making an offer on a house that is currently rented. The owner disclosed on the disclosure they sent me that the property is leased until June 2 (today is January 26), I do not mind renting the property until then and receiving than income , aslo the owner mentioned he has withheld 1 month of rent , one month of security . I have a Florida Real Estate standard contract I completed my self but I am not sure if something should be included , a provision or an addendum that mention anything regarding this rent, since I do not have a copy of the lease agreement , how do I know , the amount of the rent , the term of the agreement for sure. Is this information suppose to be disclosed after contract is executed , or is is suppose to be disclosed after they accept the offer,?. I am not sure , becasue i dont see why getting to review a lease etc ect when I dont even know if they will consider my offer.
If the property is a single family home and they aren't currently in a lease you may request the seller give them 60 days notice prior to the close. I would make sure your agent requests estopels for the tenant that show their deposit (if they remain at the property) lease, etc. Your best bet of course is to work with an agent that has the knowledge to make sure all the correct documentation is requested and part of the contract. It also depends on where the property is located. If it's not in the City of Los Angeles it could fall under different restrictions and then the 60 days notice or owner occuping with 60 day notice may not apply.. Have your agent do the research before you write an offer.
