Buying a duplex but one half just began long term lease

5 Replies

I want to buy a duplex and live in one unit, and rent out the other unit to my mom. I found the perfect property, but one half just began a long term lease back in may. How can I get them out of the house? I hate to evict someone for no reason but I need the building. I’ve looked at everything.

Buy them out with full sec dep refund and moving-relo assistance.  As long as you offer the right carrot they will bite. Good comm will be key.

@Austin J. There are definitely a couple things wrong here. First, you cannot just evict with “no reason”. That’s a great way to get sued. Second, you want to rent to your mom. Horrible horrible idea. Helping your mom? Great idea. I help my mom. And would never “rent” to her.
