I'll be rent responsible for about 3 weeks after move out date as per next tenant's lease. Can I occupy the property and/or hold onto keys during those 3 weeks? The rental is in Milpitas, CA.

if you paid, its yours........remember the land lord does not have to pro-rate rent.
security should be returned after you move out and return keys in time period stated by your state

If you have to pay rent, it's yours. If they want you out early, they should pro-rate the rent and let you out early. If not, it's yours whether you stay there or not. They can't have it both ways.
