Need help? Process in purchasing two unit apartment.?

We are in process of purchasing of two unit building. Our closing date was Oct 1 but it got pushed back till Oct 15 due to credit issues. One week ago, we requested the owner to ask if the 2nd floor could move out and we will give them one month free month since the lease was till Feb of next year.

One week ago, we requested the owner to ask if the 2nd floor could move out and we will give them one month free month since the lease was till Feb of next year.

Meaning, Closing date Oct 1, and they get one month free rent and they move out Nov 1. But the tenants are moving end of Sep So the Owner wants us to pay for the October rent since the closing date got pushed back and tenants are moving Sep.

Nothing was official we just asked if they could move out.

Now the owner wants us to pay for the October rent?

How can I get out of this?

Thanks in advance
