Legal Lines – Question of the Month
 
With the help of McClelland & Anderson, we are taking the most recently asked questions from our legal hotline and putting them in E-news. We will be featuring a different question each issue.
 
QUESTION:
My buyer just closed on the purchase of a home and is allowing the seller to have 60 days occupancy post-closing. Is there a limit to the time of possession allowed for the seller? 

ANSWER:

NO. There is no law restricting the length of a seller’s occupancy period. Buyers who are entering into long-term arrangements should be encouraged to consult with an attorney about putting together a formal lease agreement. Buyers should also make certain that their insurance agent is aware of this arrangement and make certain that the correct insurance is in place.
