Unit needs new subflooring in bathroom

Recently purchased duplex then interviewed current tenants..after asking all tenants if there are issues that need to be tenant mentioned a leaking toilet. Upon further investigation..the previous owner failed to repair toilet properly. The unit now needs a subfloor along with new linoleum. Hoping the bathroom only needs a new subfloor and not a 'sub' subfloor ( not sure what the layer under the subfloor is called) unsure what to do about dispalcing the tenant for what may be a whole day, maybe even overnight, does an owner offer to put tenant up in a hotel for one night? Or Do you ask tenant if they have a place to go for one night, be it a relative or friends home, in order for the newly installed floor to properly set well and completely dry (caulking and all) Any comment would be appreciated..Thanks

We had this issue a few months ago and happened to have a vacancy in the complex. While the repairs were being made, we gave a key to the vacant apartment for the tenant to use the shower, bath facilities. This worked really well for us. Melanie H, TX
