Wait, I do have something to say. Business cares nothing about your feelings. Sell your home and move on.

You wrote that you "know" she told the tenants to stop paying rent. If you have proof, you could ask your listing agent to disclose that to your Chase negotiator.
You did not post what your agent advised you on the subject. That would have been germane to this discussion.
my opinion? : Well, since you don't live there yourself, and the tenants are not your friends or family, and you probably don't get money from the sale whether it is buyer #1 or buyer #2, then if the only reason you want the deal killed is your distaste for buyer #1, I agree with the earlier posters.
If I were in your shoes, I'd just let the sale take its course if it is not going to cost you more money to complete the transaction. I don't understand why you had to put more money into the house on the unpermitted work. But, you did, and now that money is gone and you won't be getting it back.
You wrote that the tenants stopped paying rent, You did not say if they stopped paying before or after you stopped paying Chase. If they stopped paying you after you stopped paying Chase, that is different than if you are still paying the mortgage and other expenses. I don't know how its different. It just feels as though it is.
You don't have to "like" the buyer...........
You are, unfortunately, upside down on your loan, and asking the bank to accept a loss........they HAVE accepted the loss..........I'd be happy you got to this point if I were you
The offer was signed (by you), and sent to the bank, subject to bank approval.............the bank approved ...so...it is really out of your hands.
Good luck - hope it closes!
