Sold my old house: is it legal for the new owners to change the locks and start working inside the house prior to closing?

I don't know if there is much I can do. I sold my old house, and it is scheduled to close tomorrow. Old house is in Indiana, I live in California. I found out from my friend in Indiana who has been helping me with the house that the locks were changed and the new owners were in the house working on stuff, all prior to closing. Is this legal? Should I report my agent (who was a worthless parasite that I should have fired)? Any advice? My agent has not kept me in the loop on anything and I am quite a bit irritated. Thank you in advance.
