I'll try to make this as short and sweet as possible.
I bid on a house back in April, bid approved but it our side said that this was pending good inspection and apprasial.
Inspection came back w/ several things wrong, they agreed to fix.
Then, appraisal was done and they wanted several other things fixed.
We sent the request for the repairs to be fixed that were on the appraisal, they never responded in writing but said they weren't doing the repairs, over the phone to my agent.
Well, we sent 2 mutal releases over and they did not respond to either.
June 8th comes along and they say all the repairs are done and they're ready to close.
I was under the impression Iwasn't getting the house anymore, but I go look at it again to see if repairs are done and I still loove the house.
Repairs are not completed and the ones that are done are not done correctly.
They say they will be suing me for backing out of deal, do you think they have a leg to stand on? They didn't respond to our last 4 pieces of correspondence at all.
Sounds like a scare tactic to me! If they haven't fixed everything that is listed in black and white then" No" I don't think they have a leg to stand on! That's the purpose of home inspections! If you haven't seen papers stating they are suing, I'd say they are bluffing! If you do end up in court , they would be paying all court costs. You can't be forced to buy a house that has issues that were pointed out and would "seal the deal" once fixed! Like I said, I think they're trying to scare you," stick to your guns!"

This happened to my in-laws except they were the sellers & the buyer suddenly backed out (none of the delays you've experienced). They guy was an attorney & was prepared to fight, but my in-laws kept his escrow & both realtors told the buyer he should let that happen. They may have some legal standing if you didn't officially withdraw your bid, but I agree that at most they'd keep your escrow. Good luck! And who knows, maybe you'll buy the house after all.
