Thank you for the question.  You can actually sell the property as a tenanted dwelling, these sell quite well as there are quite a few people looking to purchase buy to let property.   Their rental agreement would not change and they would still have all the same rights.  If the new landlord wishes to change this that is up to them.  However, to answer you  question. you can sell wit a tenant in it.
