An agreement allowing occupancy of a premises for a stated period of time provided
certain terms are met. A limited occupancy agreement is most frequently used when a prospective buyer is waiting for a closing to occur on a piece of property he/she wishes to occupy. For example, John is waiting to close an a home presently vacated by the prospective seller. John had to vacate his apartment prior to the closing. He negotiates a limited occupancy agreement with the seller where he agrees to pay $50 per day to occupy the premises until the closing which is scheduled in one week.
