Ginda is correct you can include that in your agreement if you want to go back to take scionwood. Hopefully you're not moving too far. if your trees are not fully dormant now not sure how would your scions survive until grafting time, I doubt they will take, unless there are a few things that can be rooted instead of grafted you should be fine taking them early probably.
Good luck

Consider writing a "take scions" clause into the sale agreement.  When  
I was shopping for houses one of the ones I looked at had a clause to  
allow the seller to take small selections of her (extensive) hosta  
collection at whatever time of year it's best to divide hostas.  I  
didn't buy the house, but the clause was not a problem for me, and my  
guess is that it wasn't a problem for other potential buyer.
