So my wife and I are set to close on a house in Colorado at the end of June. The current occupants had requested to be out by 7/2, which was fine. Then they came back and requested to be out by 7/7 and wish to pay rent for a week. The contract says they have to be out 7/2. I won't be able to move in until after 7/7, so the timing is not the issue. Seems odd to me though. Am I setting myself up to become an involuntary landlord who then has to evict someone? Does money changing hands put me in an odd position?
