Legal recourse if seller causes damage after closing date?

Hi all,

We are under contract on a house where the seller would like to amend the contract to allow her 48 hours after closing for us to take possession.

Her reason provided for this is she needs the funds from the sale to settle in order to buy her new house. On the one hand we understand as we were in a similar situation but had family to stay with nearby while our old house’s sales funds settled.

That being said, if the seller does not move out after the 48 hours and/or causes damage after moving out, do we have any recourse to make us whole that is practical without involving an attorney or month’s long mediation?
