If they agree to an amount up front and try to change it and pay less, can you cancel then?

As I stated earlier below....only "1" thing counts...that's "what is in writing". If you agreed to a certain price "in writing" and they are changing the agreement...if it's not in writing...they just can't or your agreement is void IF everything is in writing. Not sure what you mean when you say "threatened" by the buyer though.

OBVIOUSLY, I do not have either an attorney, so if your comment is to do what they say, please feel free NOT to comment to me. This is NO help. To those who offered a true comment with a basic answer to my question, THANK YOU for your help. You are very kind.

Remember that a real estate contract is a legal agreement between two parties, and both parties are held to the terms of that contract. The state real estate contracts, which are prepared by Arkansas attorneys, and used by Arkansas licensed real estate agents, stipulate allowances to the buyer and the seller when the contract may become null and void. If you are working with a license Arkansas real estate agent, then they can guide you through this process at no additional cost for an attorney. If not, then you need to consult with your attorney to determine the terms of the contract that you used.

It helps if you have a Real Estate Agent representing you to walk you through the process but the bottom line is always remember "all real estate contracts MUST be IN WRITING"....so whatever agreement you have "in writing" stands...if the buyer is attempting to change anything, you answer is no, heck no and they can cancel the deal and you can accept that cancellation. Otherwise you may be stuck to the deal. If you don't have an agent then I would call maybe "legal aid" and see if they would answer the question for you or contact an attorney.
