Tazewell, TN asked in Real Estate Law for Tennessee

Q: After a home closing, how long does the seller have to vacate the home?

My agent did not have an agreement signed by the seller or buyer. He kept telling me they would move asap after the sale and told them they have 30 days. What can I do? I want to move in my home.

A: Check the wording of the real estate contract used in the transaction. The possession date is usually spelled out in the written agreement between the parties. If you do not find the answer there, take all of your paperwork to an attorney that is familiar with real estate transactions.
