The curent tenant has the possibility to stay and even benefits from a pre-emptive right in the buying process, if he/she has been renting this property for more than 18 years.
If the rental contract was duly completed in writing, the new landlord cannot oppose to it and the contract must run its course until the end of its pre-determined duration. In the instance of an indefinite contract, he/she can only remove the tenant if he wants to move in himself/herself, if he/she wants to move a close relative in or if major renovation work has to take place. A 6 month notice from the landlord is requested.
