Asked by DR, Oakland, CA • Sun Jul 20, 2008
I am considering buying a duplex in Rockridge which is currently tenant occupied. One side of the duplex is on a month-to-month lease where as the other side has a year long lease. I would like to move into the side that is on the month-to-month lease after buying the duplex. The complication is that the current owner wants to sell the place as is and would like me to deal with the tenants.
Could somebody tell me what my options are? Specifically:
(a) Can the current owner terminate the month-to-month lease or does he have to file an owner eviction?
(b) If I buy the duplex with both tenants in place, can I terminate the month-to-month lease as easily as the current owner? Or do I have to file an owner eviction notice?
(c) Is it significantly easier for the current owner to get the month-to-month tenant to leave than for me to get him/her to leave after I buy the duplex or vice-versa?
Thanks in advance for your help.
