Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If the lock needed to be replaced and the broker agreed to pay for it, then you would have to sue the broker later in small claims court to recover the money. The important thing is that you have to get all the permits and keys together for the buyer, who is entitled to possession immediately upon signing. If everything is not ready to go the buyer can delay signing until it is ready to go and you need to come up with a date by which everything will be ready for the buyer to sign and take possession immediately.
