Talk to your attorney - he/she may be able to negotiate this to a shorter delay, negotiate some of the expense that you will incur as a result of the delay, or perhaps close as scheduled and consider a allowing the seller to remain under a Use and Occupancy in which you are paid a fair rent. However, a clean and final closing is always preferred.
Talk to your attorney for a clear understanding of your options and good luck to you!
