Legal Q&A: Does selling a property terminate existing leases?
Question: I am considering selling a duplex I own. Both sides are rented under one-year leases. A potential buyer said he would need to move into one side of the unit and could not wait for the lease to expire. If there is a sale, doesn’t that terminate any lease I have with the tenants?
