Real estate contract buy as is. The buyers wanted certain

Customer Question

Real estate contract buy as is. The buyers wanted certain inspections done amounting to $1,349.00. They were not ready to close on agreed closing date. I did not issue an extension on the closing date. I released their deposit but, now they want the $1,349.00 they spent of their own choosing. I had written them a check for the $1.349.00 but, had a stop payment issued on that check when told by others I didn't owe them anything for the things they requested not me. Do you have an answer.

Does your contract discuss this issue at all?

Expert:  Maverick replied 3 months ago.

Also, does the contract state anything about the seller not withholding consent to issue an extension without just cause?

Expert:  Maverick replied 3 months ago.

Under this version of a FL real estate contract, the buyer has to conduct inspections at his own expense and since you did not default on the contract, you do not owe the buyer any thing for those sunk costs.
