I agree with Tim.

1) Make sure your tenant can get a loan.
2) Write up a sales contract using an agent or lawyer
3) Go to a title company to close the deal and transfer the deed.

Also, the appraisal will be up to the buyers lender.

Your tenant first needs to go speak with a lender to see if they can buy and get a loan. If not you don't need to waste anymore time. You will need a lawyer to draw up the documents and record the deed and deal with the lenders papers. The lender will require an appraisal and will order it. They will let the lawyer know if they need a survey.

Get the tenant to go speak to a lender and go from there.
