I just noticed my house on trulia lists 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. This information is incorrect. My house has 5 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths. How do?
Contact the Realtor who listed your house for sale as the error was made upon input into their MLS system. All the information displayed on Trulia comes from MLS data systems.

Is there a recouse to the seller for not fixing home inspection items that were listed in the contract?
Cindy is correct. You need to talk to your buyer agent for advice. If you don't have an agent working for you than a real estate attorney is the one to give you advice.
