On the other hand, the U-O may allow the seller to stay in the house for some time after closing (also known as the „rent-return“ agreement). In markets where stocks are limited, as we have seen in the wake of the COVID 19 pandemic, sellers are more likely to apply for O-O agreements because it is more difficult to find their nearest property. One way to avoid this problem – without convincing the seller not to bring the buyer in at an early stage – is to let the buyer do his pre-emption review – and accept the condition of the house – before he settles down. Another option is to allow the buyer to store his furniture and belongings in the house until closing — perhaps against an agreed storage right — but without allowing him to move into the house.

These types of agreements, known as post-occupancy agreements(sometimes called rent-back agreements), are agreements in which the buyer agrees to allow the seller of the property to remain in the house after the billing date.
These are not cutting and insertion chords. Instead, some kind of legal finesse is needed to ensure that all parties are protected, since there may be potential liability if these agreements are not properly structured and verified. One of the main concerns that could be problematic is liability during this additional time. Sellers should be held responsible for injuries or losses or damage to property closures. Sellers should take this into account and have their own liability insurance until they evacuate the premises to ensure that they do not face a heavy personal liability by not terminating insurance during the extra period. Occasionally, however, a buyer wants to move into the property that is purchased before actually owning it. And sometimes a salesperson will want to stay in the house, even after selling it. U-O agreements between buyers and sellers of real estate can be used to cover unforeseen changes in the date of withdrawal and use of real estate. A U-O agreement could have conditions that give the purchaser of a property early access to the removal of furniture and objects in the premises. The buyer should wait until the official occupancy date before he can take possession of the property. This may be necessary if the buyer has already closed and has to move with the sale of his former property.
