Running background on existing tenants prior to purchasing home

1 Reply

Have a buyer considering a unit with existing tenant. Willing to let them stay buts wants to do a background check. At what point in the transaction is this ok? 

Did the current own do a background check? If so, maybe he can provide details of that. If not, would the current tenants be OK with providing their info for a check? I would want to know how long they have been in the unit and if they pay timely. The current owner can at least provide that info.
