I have a renter...

I have a renter to own in Duluth MN that has been late on payments and hasent paid in full in those three months, he Is caught up now but has been late three different months out of the shy of two weeks of being there 6 months. I have an investor who has contacted me because he is interested in my home. My question is can I sell my house with having a contract rent to own to someone else to take over my house with renter if he agrees to honor my contract with my renter?

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have been taken so far? Has any paperwork been prepared or filed?

No paper work except our agreement between us. When he was late I called him and gave him the opertunity to catch up and I told him he can’t be late any more. When I left MN he told me then that he wanted to buy my house in 4 months then it turned to 6 months. I am living with my son and would like to buy a house here in Colorado but have to wait for the sale of the Duluth home to do so

Lawyer's Assistant: Has he talked to a MN lawyer about this?

No not that I know of

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Just want to know my rights and if I can sell house to someone else who will tal take over the rental

Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.

.

Sure, you would just be assigning your rights to the new buyer who would then continue on as the landlord/seller to the tenant/buyer.

.

The new owner would just "step into your shoes" and take over as the landlord/seller with all the same rights that you had..

thanks

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
