6.6 Selling a Rental Unit

When an owner sells a rental unit, the tenant living in that unit may be evicted, but it is not automatic. If the purchaser wants to occupy the rental unit, or have a “close family member” occupy the unit, they can ask the seller in writing to give the tenant a Two Month Notice on their behalf, but only after all the conditions of the sale have been satisfied. However, if the purchaser does not plan on occupying the rental unit, or having a “close family member” occupy the unit, then they inherit the existing tenancy agreement. In other words, the tenancy continues under the same terms as before, except with the purchaser as the new landlord.
