You are in a pretty sticky situation and let me tell you why. First, to answer one of your questions of do agents have bosses. Yes they do, their boss is you. I would let your agent know under no uncertain terms that you are not agreeing to the contract how it is currently written. I would insist the other agent be notified that this was in error and the terms of the contract need to be renegotiated. Most buyers and sellers at this point can usually come to some kind of understanding. However, if you really want to buy the property you are going to have to understand that the seller agreed to the terms of the contract as it was presented to them. They agreed on a price and the terms as they saw them. There is a pretty good chance the seller will be agreeable to renegotiate your closing cost and pay them but chances are also high they are going to want to renegotiate the price as well to absorb your closing cost and will want to adjust the price accordingly.
If that does not work then you may want to have a word with their broker.
