Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
So are you saying there was a firm offer and an acceptance of the offer and now, not only do they owe you money but they said they are not going to adhere to the agreement and close the deal?
You can sue them to comply with the terms of the agreement and for the rent that they owe you.
At the same time you are required to try and mitigate your damages so you have to do all you can to sell the house again. If you find a new buyer the current purchasers will be liable to you for any costs you incurred in finding these buyers and any damages you suffer so if you have to sell the house for less, for example, they will owe you the difference.And of course they owe you what rent they still owe that has not been paid.
Does that help as a starting point?
