Can they be evicted upon purchase of the house?

Hi, thank you for your question. The tenants will remain in occupation of the property under whatever tenancy they have in place until the tenancy is ended by the landlord (and the tenants agree to leave) or if there is a court order evicting them from the property. It should be a condition of the purchase of the property that vacant possession is given to the buyer and the seller should pursue the eviction process to regain possession of the property prior to completion, unless the prospective buyer wishes to purchase the property with the tenants continuing.Please provide a positive rating if you found this information helpful. I will not be credited with answering this question without a positive rating. Thank you
