Good evening. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to seeing you.
Are the requested repair items required under the contract? Did the seller agree to do the work?
Thank you dor the additional information. Whatever the seller has warrantedmust be delivered at closing in the warranted condition.
The MLS is not relevant where there is a contract. Also, the MLS contains disclaimers which preclude the use of it as a warranty.
If the seller is refusing to deliver the property in the agreed condition then the buyer may refuse to close and also sue the seller for breach of contract.
Your client can refuse to close until the repairs are done and sue the seller for breach.
The legal fees are whatever the buyer negotiates with the attorney of their choise. There is not a set cost.
If the contract provides, it is possible the legal fees are recoverablw from the seller of the house.
