You are taking a risk whenever you work on property before you have title. I had a lease option and the lease allowed me to fix up the property which I did. When it was time to close Seller wanted to back out. I had my attorney threaten a Specific Performance lawsuit before the Seller would allow me to buy. In your case. Make sure there are no Sellers contingencies that are not met. Make sure you perform exactly as your contract reads.
