Have a question about a property I’m moving into?

I’m moving into a new home on the 28th of August and the previous tenant is a non renewal as they’ve had various complaints of noise violations ect 

This tenant told the owner of the townhomes that they need more time as they haven’t been able to find a new place 

This individual is a non renewal so they granted them a 2 week extension which would leave enough time before I move in but by the looks of it this person will

Use the pandemic as a excuse they couldn’t find a place what happens in the situation that they refuse to leave and during the current pandemic can they be taken off the property

    If evictions are back in play and can be done then they will be evicted, but that will also take time.  You likely will need a back up for the 28th as you might not  be able to move in there.  You need to stay on top of your new potential landlord and make sure you get ALL correspondence regarding this situation in writing email preferably...

    Depends on if you have paid a deposit and/ or signed a lease yet.  If you have done neither then you may just be sol.

    Depends on if you have signed the contract or not.......... if not then you have no secure move in date....if you have signed and for some reason you are unable to mve in because the tenant is still there, then the landlord needs to pay for/ provide lternative accomodation until you can move in ( as it is them in breach of contract)

    If you have a lease, you have a right to move in when the lease starts.  Tell them that you are moving in on X day and if you can't, then they are going to pay for a hotel and the cost of storing your stuff until you can move in, and lost wages and other damages for failing to abide by the lease you signed.  They should never have agreed to give the existing tenant 2 more weeks without consulting you.  So what that they can't find a place.  That's their problem, not yours.  What do you mean by "taken off the property".  You said they were tenants, not owners.

    Legally they have to leave.

    Practically, getting them out can be a long and tedious process. What has to happen depends on the law of wherever the property is.

    depends on what they did
