If anybody, buyer or seller are not keeping up their end of the sales contract the other party can sue for specific performance.
Best of luck to you.

Are these questions something that is happening or something you fear may happen? If this is something you expect to happen, you need to keep an eye on the home, look for signs that they are packing and preparing to move. If you are a few days away and there are no signs, alert your agent and discuss your options.
If this is something you have heard about happening to others, but have no specific reason to suspect may be the case, just ask your agent to find out what the seller's plans are. Most of the time the seller's are happy to be packing and moving on to the next phase of their lives.
You have a contract which states the terms of when closing is to take place and when possession is to happen. If the seller's are not performing, you have legal options contained in the contract.
On that point, check with a lawyer.
What if their stuff is still in the house on closing day? It's yours. You can throw it out. You can sell it. You can use it. It's yours. Check with your Realtor (and the provisions of the sales agreement) for details.
Hope that helps.
Did you or the seller use a Realtor? a lawyer?
Did you execute a contract of sale at a Title Co.?
Your questions triggered a slew of questions from myself and my colleagues.
I hope our questions are of help.
A. Review your contract. Is the seller required to deliver possession on the date of closing?
Q. What if they keep refusing to show up at closing or agree to date?
A. Your contract should have had a closing date and if so, the sellers may be in default of the contract...but need legal counsel to review the contract and determine who, if anyone, has defaulted. I wouldn't allow the delays to continue without making contact with an attorney though.
