Selling a Rented Property - 4 H


Selling a Rented Property - 4 H

The fact that a property is rented out does not make it impossible to sell. It can, for example, be sold during the lease or at the end of the lease by means of a "congé pour vendre" (notice to sell).

However, the purchaser cannot evict a farmer or tenant with whom an authentic lease has been signed, or if they were aware of a lease prior to the acquisition. The sale of a property does not affect the terms of tenants' leases. Like easements - which are linked to the land and not the owner - leases remain attached to the property. The future owner-lessor will therefore not be able to modify the terms of the lease: for example - increasing the rent is therefore impossible if it was not provided for in the lease.

At the end of this module you will be able to describe the characteristics of a residential lease, identify the rights and duties of the parties and describe other types of lease. A final quiz will enable you to validate the module. 


In this module, we will look at the process for serving notice on a tenant, when its vendor landlord wishes to sell the property with vacant possession (un-tenanted).

At the end of this module, you will be able to describe the steps to be taken by the (future) landlord to as the tenant to vacate the property and explain the constraints and formalities to be observed. 

A final quiz will validate this module.
