Q: Selling Single Family Home Rented Out Month to Month Lease, Tenant Current on Rent
I have a single family home in Riverside County that I've rented out for many years. Now I'm getting old and looking to retire. I can no longer manage the property being so far away so I'd like to sell it. Since we're still in the midst of COVID but the tenant is current on rent payment, can I terminate the lease and request the tenant move out? Would this be impacted by the statewide eviction moratorium? I'm not really evicting them, just ending lease right?
A: You really need to take all of this to a local Real Property attorney to discuss privately. When you sell your property new options kick in, but you also have to provide the tenant with legal notice and he may be entitled to a moving allowance of 30 day's rent.
