When purchasing a property contract for deed with an active month-to-month lease and tenants on the property, does that lease typically transfer to the purchaser? Or, is that something which has to be specified in the contract for deed?

The situation is: It wasn't specified. The seller was supposed to evict the tenants within 30 days. This was a verbal agreement. The seller attempted to evict, but the tenants aren't cooperating. We (buyer and seller) need to know who should be serving the official eviction notices. Eventually we believe this will require a local justice court filing as is typical here to evict an un-cooperative tenant. The issue is, we don't want the court rejecting everything because the wrong individual sent the 30 day notice, sent the 10 day notice and finally filed the court paperwork.
