(f) Notice To Tenants

The Residential Tenancy Act permits a landlord to end a tenancy if the landlord has entered into an agreement to sell the rental unit, all conditions on which the sale depends have been removed, and the purchaser asks the landlord in writing to give notice to end the tenancy. A buyer may request that the seller give notice to end the tenancy if the buyer or a close family member of the buyer intends to occupy the rental unit, or, if the buyer is a family corporation and a person owning voting shares in the corporation, or a close family member intending to occupy the rental unit.

Notice to Tenants Clause

The Seller will give legal notice to the Tenant to vacate the premises, but only if the Seller receives the appropriate written request from the Buyer to give such notice in accordance with the requirements of section 49 of the Residential Tenancy Act.

Ώ NOTE: The Seller cannot give notice to the tenant until all the subject clauses have been removed.
