Thank you for your patience.So if I am understanding you correctly, you already entered into a different lease with a new tenant to take over on December 1st and now wish to cancel that lease because the current tenant wants to buy the condo?It would depend on if there is any specific language in the contract allowing for the right of the landlord to rescind the agreement, but generally once you and a tenant have signed an agreement, you have entered into a legally binding contract. The future tenant could sue you for damages for not being able to move in December 1st.What works in your favor is October just started --the future tenant has just about 60 days to find a new, comparable place. Obviously, I would suggest you return any type of deposits/security the future tenant may have provided, but even then, you do still run the risk of being sued for breach.Please remember to kindly leave a positive rating for me by clicking on the stars, as that is the only way experts are paid for their time even though you may have already paid a deposit to the site.
