OK, this is a legal question, and not one a shrink is qualified to answer. What is the previous owner thinking - that you just gave them this marvellous gift of a large amount of money, for them to remain in the place they sold to you ?
Its a fine legal issue as to whether you would benefit or possibly lose some of your rights, if you moved in as well. I see no reason for anyone to be concerned about whether you "bother" him - personally, I'd be inclined to lay charged of theft and fraud against him, for having taken your money under false pretenses. I have no idea whether you would be obliged to give him keys were you to change any locks - if he had keys, what would be the point of changing the locks ?
Make absolutely certain, whatever you do, that YOU are fully compliant with the law, so HE doesn't have any excuse for further delay by complaining about you.
