If the buyer is allowed into possession before completion, then, unless the contract provides to the contrary, he is entitled to the rents and profits1 from the time of taking possession2, and he is entitled to do all acts consistent with possession of the land such as harvesting crops. The seller is still entitled to a lien over the property for the purchase price3, therefore the buyer may not do any acts which would devalue the seller's security for his money, such as cutting timber or otherwise committing waste
