Hey. So we recently tried to buy a house but backed out as I had recently talked I you about. I just wanted to touch up in a few things... We were told she was very upset and going to sue us well she ended up signing the mutual release form due to the fact that she was selling her house to a new buyer..we got served papers saying she's wanting to sue us for the 3 months that we were trying to buy the house for a total of around 7000$.. Should we get a lawyer?

Response: You should. You need a real estate litigation Attorney to assist you with the case. However, if you signed a mutual release, which releases each party from further claims, I am not sure what the lawsuit is going to accomplish. Make sure you get a copy of the release that you signed. That would be the only thing that you would need to defend this lawsuit.

Your Attorney should be able to review the release to see if there is any issue with it as far as doing what it is supposed to do: that is, shield you from future lawsuit such as the one that the Seller just brought.

You can use the following sites to find local real estate litigation Attorneys:
