When a tenant is requested to leave the rented house (for instance, because the landlord want to sell the house), he can get a reasonable compensation. Roughly speaking, a reasonable compensation can be calculated by taking 10-20% of the sales price of the house (take the market price for a house without tenants) and divide it by two.
A house without tenants can be sold for a higher price than a house with tenants in it. Roughly speaking, the difference is about 10-20%. This difference, reasonably divided by two, can be seen as a reasonable compensation, since in this way, both the landlord and the tenant gain in a similar manner from it.
