Who is nuts? Seller, sellers agent or us for staying?!I will try to make this brief. It will be difficult. Upped our price point due to a recent inheritance. Immediately found a house perfect on paper. Scheduled to see it. Got sick so husband went alone. He came home and said it was perfect. He was clearly in love. I went to see it two times after. We made an offer. The negotiations on the sale price went well. Had home inspection done. Found multiple water damage points as well as a leaking above ground cast iron sewer pipe in basement. We submit a repair addendum asking for everything expecting negotiations. Thus begins a huge fight. Seller initially agreed to fixing one window creating water damage. We went back for the pipe to be fixed also. They simply did not want to make repairs themselves. They offered $2500 for repairs plus $5000 in closing costs. Before we could agree to this our realtor went back to insist the pipe be fixed by them prior to close as its a health issue and we are moving in with four small children. They came back they would fix pipe (and window) but we were not allowed to reinspect. We rejected this and signed the original offer of $2500+$5000. At the same time we have been doing everything our lender has asked but we got held up with a technicality on our down payment so we needed an extention to get the mortgage commitment letter. At this point they said they would not sign the extension and wanted us to sign the release. We have not. Then we go back and the sellers broker says they got a new plumber who says they don't have to fix the pipe at all so the new deal is 5000 only at closing and they have the right to continue to try to sell to someone else up to closing. My realtor asks the sellers broker to put it in writing. She refuses and says she will not put anything in writing and the offer is only good for 24 hours. We realize we have to accept the 5000 but won't allow them to sell it from under us. This seems insane.
