We sold our house and got an okay price, not great ( bad

We sold our house and got an okay price , not great ( bad experience with our realestate agent as she just wants to churn and burn houses the too quickly and did not get a lot of offers for us but our house sold one day on the market and she urged us to take the offer as she kept saying it was so good , come to find out later that houses around us were in bidding wars and she Just told us lies about the comps but that is another story: this market is very hot with no inventory so we know now we could have gotten about 10k more at least).Anyway, to my question: we are set to close in the middle of next week. We passed appraisal and inspection with flying colors.Last night our house got stuck by lightening or it stuck close to our home as it fried the downstairs HVAC fan engine (800 to fix). And it fried my internet modem. So now we need to fix the downstairs HVAC system and then move out I guess right? I mean do we have to fix it? We already passed inspection and appraisal and these people are getting a very good deal on this house. We even have to move on very inconvenient days ( my husband and I have missed so much work due to these people wanting to move in this house so fast ( they are in a lease situation ). Can I ask them to pay for the repair or just not make the repair ? Would that be illegal? This all happened after inspection . Could I negotiate it somehow. I just feel with the price they are getting and how badly they want this house and we did so many repairs before we even put it on the market - we just do not want to sink anymore money in this house. My agent knows I am super bitter about her representation of us ( she listed our house during spring break week , we did not know any better due to us not having kids yet but she should have known that would reduce foot traffic, she is the expert not us). I told her point blank we were not happy with her service and asked her to lower her commission which she will not do.So do I technically need to fix that fan engine? Can I use it to negotiate ?

I asked you a question yesterday about the sale of a rental

Hi. I asked you a question yesterday about the sale of a rental property to a tenant. We had mutually agreed to end the contract and then they changed their minds (before anything was signed canceling it )and want to continue with the purchase. If they end up taking us to court to force the sale can all their attorney fees be charged us? Or does each side have to pay their own fees?

We agreed to sell a rental property to the current tenant.

We agreed to sell a rental property to the current tenant. During the due diligence period, we had s disagreement over the appraisal and we decided to not move forward with the sale. The tenants were on board a couple weeks ago and were supposed to send the forms to have us release their due diligence and earnest money. They now want to move forward with the sale and are threatening to sue us. Their lease ends July 31. My question is? Do they have a legal basis to hold over or do they have to leave July 31 even if they are suing us? Then if they were to win their case, they would get possession of the property with the next tenant in it?
