What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? California
We just closed escrow on a SFR in California on Dec 3. The home is currently occupied by a tenant. We were informed by the seller's realtor that we could give the tenant 30-day-notice upon our ownership, as we intend to move in to the home as soon as possible.
Upon going to deliver the 30-day-notice to the tenant today, I was informed (by the tenant) that she is on Section 8 and therefore requires 90-day-notice. This was never disclosed to us by the seller, and we were told on multiple occasions that a 30-day-notice would be sufficient. Additionally, the purchase contract clearly stated 30-day-notice would be required to vacate the premises.
We are upset that this information was mis-represented/withheld from us, and it greatly impacts our plans for moving in to the property and beginning necessary renovations (for insurance purposes).
What is our recourse at this point? Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
