If it's legal, it's put on the HUD statement. The fact that he wants it outside the HUD is your first clue that it is illegal. DO NOT do this. You should report it at least to the bank that holds the mortgage. I'd also report it to anyone that would listen - state police, FDIC, FBI, etc. ... more

Check with your Realtor. Either of your ideas will work. It really depends on what you and the sellers decide. They can compensate you for your expenses if you permit them to stay there through August. That is, compensation above the rent they'll already being paying you.

Or you can demand that the terms of the contract be honored. They can stay through the end of July. Period.

Or, being a nice guy, you can allow them to stay through the end of July, then at least partially compensate them for August. (Maybe offer to pay the storage fees on their furniture and belongings.)

What you don't want is for it to drag on any longer. If they're building a house, it might not even be ready by the end of August. And then you get into the new school year, so if they haven't moved by then, they may want to stick around for a while longer.

You need an absolutely firm end date.

See what your Realtor suggests.

Hope that helps.
