Legacy Tenant Screening/Disclosure

1 Reply

Hi - how do you go about researching a tenant that already lives in the property you are about to purchase?  do they pay rent, are they out of work currently, or not paying rent due to covid etc.  Legally are sellers supposed to disclose any tenant issues?  

You have to honor the current lease. During the remainder time they have left, keep on eye out for compliance with the current lease. when it's up you can move fwd with asking for the home or evicting. If you choose to renew then thats when you really do your research- collecting verufucation on income, referrals, etc

Best of luck
