You need to get yourself a real estate attorney. And in the meantime, you will have to probably rent an apartment or a hotel in the meantime. I would make sure you have copies of all of these expenses just in case you are entitled to damages from this.
I would recommend that you immediately contact a very good real estate attorney. Your realtor should have told you about this ahead of time if they had any idea this would happen. You may have an ethics situation. If you went thru the listing agent to buy the home, they probably they did not represent you at all, and therefore did not have to tell you. This happens alot with buyers in Florida. Let me know if you want to know the phone number of a very good real estate attorney. I would also recommend that you find a short term rental, possibly a corporate rental, like Mainsail by Marriot, to stay at until you find a home. This will save you some money, while you are working with your NEW realtor.
