A buyer of a rental property cannot give notice to vacate to the tenant until the buyer actually owns the property. After closing any notice is subject to the terms of the lease as well as local and state laws. Also, neither the listing nor the selling broker has the authority to give notice to the tenant at any point. Although this all seems obvious, sometimes the parties get overzealous and forget.
