Hi and welcome to JA. My name is XXXXX XXXXX X am the expert that will be assisting you tonight.
I would agree with you that the terms of the sales contract control.If the buyer has no out concerning park approval then they are in breach of the contract if they do not close on time.
You may need a local lawyer to file such a suit or threaten such a lawsuit.If they bought this without any language about park approval then you are correct that it would be their problem under Connecticut law as a breach of the sales contract.
So I should contact a Real Estate or Contract attorney on my behalf? It is a STICKY situation adding that the Realtor represents both me AND the buyer
And she is a FRIEND
I would use a real estate lawyer.You would advise them that if they do not close you intend to sue for breach of contract.I will get you lawyer referral here..
thank you very much!
