I am the seller in a transaction that was originally

I am the seller in a transaction that was originally scheduled to close on 1 September but was delayed, via addendum, until 23 September. The buyer closed on or about 16 September but I just signed on 27 September due to multiple (five) incorrect HUD statements submitted by the title company. I signed and sent a cashier's check to cover the amount owed but was just contacted today and told that I owe an additional $2k. 1) Given we are beyond the addendum end date, am I liable for this $2k? 2) will the title company have to return my $5.5k that I sent via cashier's check?

Two part question: 1) Is a seller that is requesting money

Two part question:1) Is a seller that is requesting money outside of closing illegal? I was told, 'I'll hold this sale up' if I don't get $2k.2) Can his real estate agent cancel the contract on the grounds he is trying to do this?Long story short, he told me he had the short sale approved, I offered $130k. He apparently was paying $110k (no big deal). Bank came back and said, '$150k or counter', he hasn't countered in a month. His contract says 'until bank approval', but the bank did not approve his price.After knowing he is trying to (what word would I even use here - blackmail, coerce) into paying him for him to sign the release papers, can she cancel the deal for any legal reason?This person doesn't have the wherewithall to fight a case against him for acting in bad faith, which is something I would do out of spite even if I didn't close on the house... so what are my options here?

I purchased a duplex last October which is part of a 2-unit

I purchased a duplex last October which is part of a 2-unit HOA. The former owner of my duplex was the president of this HOA when he owned the property. Upon sale (and to this day), he has not turned over any of the HOA official documents, bank account or agency of record with the state. How do we get him to transfer them? It is my assumption that this should have been done upon sale.
