Can a Seller get out of a sales contract of a house?We are under contract of a property and the seller does not want to sell now. We bought the house as is and the seller agreed to replace the septic system in the contract. Now he is wanting out. We have met all of our obligations. We paid for an appraisal and inspection just to make sure there were no big surprises.
