My seller is closing next week, but will stay in the property for 30 days after closing under a temporary lease. Does the buyer still get a set of keys at closing?

  • My seller is closing next week, but will stay in the property for 30 days after closing under a temporary lease. Does the buyer still get a set of keys at closing?

Yes. The Seller’s Temporary Residential Lease (TAR 1910, TREC 15-5) states that a tenant will provide the landlord door keys and access codes so he or she may enter the property at reasonable times to inspect it during the term of the lease or to otherwise access it as allowed by the lease. However, the buyer cannot occupy the property until after the termination date stated in the seller’s lease, unless it’s terminated earlier by reason of other provisions.
