Hi, this depends on whether it is a fixed term or a periodic (month to month) tenancy. If it is a fixed term tenancy (say for 12 months), then the purchaser is generally bound by the lease - you can't evict them and replace them with another tenant just because you have purchased the property. If it is a month to month tenancy, then you can terminate the lease with the appropriate notice. If you really want to re-enter the property in a fixed term lease scenario, then I would suggest that you negotiate a mutual settlement. I hope this has been of assistance. Regards, Jared.
