Sarah,

I would speak to your notaire and ensure that part of your conditions are that the owner removes the tenants in residence prior to your purchase , or you could have a very difficult problem.

It is down to the owner of the property if they are selling to ensure it is free of problems normally, but you can write it into the conditions at the time of the act d' promise, prior to the sale, at this time you have 7 day's in which to change your minds on the purchase.

good luck !

Tenents here have more rights than house owners,and especially so if they have no tenant agr.I would check this out very carefully if I were you as we know of case where it took 6 years to get tenents out and they had it signed and sealed...or so they taught..

 

Kind Regards

Do you mean they're squatters ? How long have they been there ? Are you buying at Auction ? What does the Notaire have to advise you ?stgeorge
