Hello Marc: Unfortunately, you cannot do this without the consent of the other party to the contract. You have an enforceable contract. If you back out, the buyer would have a case against you for breach of contract. However, you can ask the buyer if he is willing to take the extra items off the contract. If he agrees, then you can put an Amendment to the Contract removing the extra items and removing the $1,500.00 that is associated with it. All other parts of the contract remains the same—are affirmed and ratified. The Amending document must be signed and dated by both parties to the contract.
