Unbeknown to me, agent was showing prospective tenants through my vacant property post sale. First I knew was when they rang to advise tenant had been found, and they want lease to begin 2 weeks before settlement date. Agent said "this is very normal, happens all the time". I was worried re my legal position if anything goes wrong re the tenants (ie damage, issues that need fixing etc before settlement. Purchaser said in email he would cover this but my conveyances says this has no legal weight and I would be liable. Q1. Is there any way for purchaser to take on this liability before settlement , ie via licence agreement? Agent says yes, my conveyancer said no. 2. Tenants are ready to move in (!) and agent says "we're" all going to liable for their incurred costs if they can't move in on the date, despite me not having been party to this whole arrangement and finding out after fact. Any idea if this is correct? Seems impossible that I could be liable. Thanks for your help.
