You will want to refer to the rent control laws of the city where you are purchasing property to see if the tenants are protected under rent control or specific rights. After that your best bet if the tenant is not cooperating is to hire a lawyer to help you with your options. There are many great lawyers who handle evictions. Please let me know if you need a few referrals. I sell a ton of income property around Hollywood and can stear you in the right direction.
