Purchase does not break rent of a property

Purchase does not break tenancy – The purchase of a property does not break the tenancy. This means that if an owner wishes to sell their rented property, the purchaser continues the tenancy as the new landlord. This means that the new landlord is bound by the lease and, accordingly, he cannot cause the tenant to draw up a new lease with him. The prerequisite for this transfer is that the residential property is sold to the tenant after the transfer. Only by registration in the land register does the purchaser also become the owner of the property.
