Legal Q&A| When does the seller have to turn over the keys if the seller remains in possession after closing?

QUESTION: One of my listings recently closed, and there was some drama at the closing table. The buyer insisted that the seller deliver the keys to the buyer, even though the contract had a Seller Possession After Closing Agreement (Form 2A8-T) attached. My client refused to turn over the keys. The closing attorney completed the transaction, but the buyer agent is still blowing up my phone demanding the keys. When does the seller have to give the keys to the buyer if Form 2A8-T is part of the contract?
