Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Can I sell my home with them having a contract for one more year.
Sure, there is nothing that prevents you from selling the house with a tenant in it. The new owner would just take the property subject to the existing lease and basically "step into your shoes" as a landlord.
But you can't terminate the lease just because you have decided to sell as the tenant has a legal right to possession of the property until the lease expires. You could only terminate if there was an uncured lease violation or you convinced the tenant to move out voluntarily.
