They then went to the closing table and had the title company walk them through every single line item on the HUD1. They signed the paperwork that they agreed with this.
It is a bit late to come back and say they made a mistake. Yes, THEY made a mistake. No one else. They need to learn from their mistake and move on. If they take it any farther, you need to hire a real estate attorney and/or perhaps talk to your title company.
Best of luck
Don't let them bully you......
I would mention to them that if they sue you.... You can and will counter sue for your legal fees.
This is bull.... They are trying to work you for a freebie.... don't be a sucker

Closing is normally the final part of the process.
I think you always want to be fair, even if mistakes are made, but in most cases I think I would just tell my realtor....we are closed..... any differences, changes, overages, shortages, whatever should have been resolved BEFORE closing. Otherwise how would the seller feel if you then said, we'll whatever it is that you understand, if that is the way it is to be, we don't want the house, and want to terminate the contract and get all our money back?
Just remember you may need something from them in the future. Not sure what, but you might need to prorate taxes, or get a manual, or a drawing, or an address, or something. Not often, but it does come up. So if it is something minor that can be addressed.....like they left their favorite guitar case in the attic, I'd let them have it.....
Review with your realtor to see what the appropriate course of action to take is.
Has your lender (if you are getting a loan) already funded the loan? (given the money to the Seller)...
