Good morning Jerry. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you. It will take me just a few minutes to type a response to your question. Thanks for your patience!
Your prospective buyer may or may not have the right to terminate due to these repairs needed...it depends upon whether or not she's within an inspection period giving her the right to terminate. But, in either case, unless your contract is written differently than most: i) you have no obligation to accept her demands; and ii) she has no legal right to extend the closing date. In either case, you do have the right to terminate the contract and move on. It's only a question of whether or not you get to keep her earnest money deposit.
