The owner wants to move out on July 20th and 21st - a weekend. Should we not close on the house until she has moved out? My thought is yes, because if we close and then let her move out, she might damage something while moving furniture, etc., and then we will have already closed on the house and given her a check, and will have no recourse. Right?

Yes, the current owner should move out before closing - because if you close while they're still in the house they may not move out, and then you have to go through the trouble of evicting them.
