Okay, sorry if I am repeating myself, but I want to be clear about my situation.
I am over 60, my tenant is 77 and has a six-year lease that expires in 2018.
I would like to live there myself and can give him plenty of notice - now for May 1, 2016. (I currently live in California and am a U.S. citizen)
If I were to put the apartment up for sale, instead, would I have the right to ask him to vacate after giving him two months (I think that is the law) to decide if he wants to buy it?
Many thanks for your helpful info - the law is quite a tangle (for me to understand) in France.
