I have owned single family homes before my my current circumstances dictate that buying a duplex is best for me at the moment. I shall owner occupy one unit and rent out the other. I have narrowed it down to a few options but have a question. One of the top choices is currently fully occupied by two tenants and obviously I will need one of them to move out for me to occupy and to comply with a primary home mortgage. I haven't asked yet whether their leases are month to month, but assuming they have more than 2 months or so left on their prior lease, what is the mechanism for me to get one to move out so I can occupy? Do i have to let their lease expire even though I have no agreement with them?

Any help is appreciated

In Colorado, the lease stays with the property. Find out what the law is where you are. Then find out the lease terms.
