Hi everyone: If I want to buy a multi unit in the state of Maine and have the entire thing to me and my family what rights do I have to ask current tenants to leave? Thanks
I would have the seller do it for you if the renters are on month to month
@Ruth P. Yes, you can make an offer with one of the conditions being that the property be handed over with all units vacant.
Great ideas! Thanks all!
Hi @Ruth P. I own several multi's in the Lewiston/Auburn area and it depends on the leases. Have your agent get the leases and see if there is a clause in there saying that the tenants can be made to leave if building is sold. This is what is in my leases:
Termination upon Sale of Property. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement,
Landlord may terminate this Agreement upon 30 days' written notice to Tenant that the Property
has been sold.
Otherwise you have to honor the leases that are in place according to Maine law.
Month to month they just need a 30 day notice.
Thanks Carl. So even if there is no clause saying that the tenants can be made to leave if the property is sold, you are allowed as the owner to ask them to leave if you give them a 30 day notice?
