I plan to buy a house as a buy-to-let investment.
The sellers have asked if they can continue to stay at the property (and pay rent) for a couple of months while some work is carried out at the house they are buying. I have no problem with this as I plan to rent anyway. I would simply put it on the market once the sellers vacate.
But it does mean the house would be sold “without vacant possession”. Is there a way I can agree to the vendors staying at the property for a couple of months without them accruing rights of occupation? I could ask them to stay at a hotel for a night or two at the time of the sale if this would signify a “clean break” but I don’t think they would want to move all their furniture out and then back.
