Property Estimation

Our reggie has informed us that the owners of the property want to perform an estimation. I assume they are looking into selling the property? Has anyone dealt with this? What should I expect when they come over?

If they do sell, I will have to look into what that means for our contract. I hope they do not plan on ending it so they can move in.

Your contract is not effected by a sale, just the owner could change. Periodically valuations are done for insurance/tax/inheritance not just sale

Re: Property Estimation

When the inspectors come over, they will most likely walk from room to room, checking things like windows and plumbing. This may include the cellar and the attic. Then they will go away, and you will probably not hear anything more of it for several months, if at all, ever.

Yes, it is possible that a new owner might make use of his/her right to give you notice so they could move in, themselves. This is not very common, though. And even if it did happen, you may well be able to get a lengthy extension.

If you are not already a member of the tenants' association, ASLOCA in the French-speaking areas, now would be the time to join. If you are given notice, they will probably be able to help you negotiate a longer extension. To get free legal help, you must have been a member before the event takes place. The event, in this instance, would not be the sale of the property, but the notice (if it happens, at all).
