Properly calculating the length of seller’s post-closing possession 

Question: My buyer client  just closed on a property using the Offer to Purchase and Contract (form 2-T). The buyer agreed to allow the seller to remain in the property for 7 days after closing, so the Seller Possession After Closing Agreement (form 2A8-T) is a part of the contract. The settlement was held at the closing attorney’s office on the afternoon of January 10, which was the day after the settlement date in the contract; however, the deed and deed of trust were recorded on January 11.

A question has come up about what day the seller’s right to occupy the property ends. The number “7” was inserted in the blank in paragraph 1 of the Possession Agreement where it says “Seller may remain in possession of the Property for a period of _______ days after the Closing.” Does the 7 days begin to run on the Settlement Date, or the date the papers were signed in the attorney’s office, or the date the deed and deed of trust were recorded?
