My tenant has just given me leave. I decided to sell the property he occupied. The salesman of the real estate agency assures me that I have to send a sale holiday to my ex-tenant. This surprised me ?

The owner who wishes to recover the premises must respect the rental period provided for in the lease . Termination can only take place after the expiry of the contract signed with the tenant, respecting a period of six months.

The leave must indicate a reason: either the sale of the dwelling, or the personal takeover, or a legitimate and serious reason. But if the tenant has himself given leave, the lessor regains the free disposition of his property.
