You need legal advice which we cannot give. Contact an attorney for an appointment bringing with you the contract of sale.
Who's liable? That's what the attorney will tell you.

Good luck! ... more

One supplement to my prior answer is some lenders allow holdbacks for repairs--but that might be an issue if the buyer is planning on doing the repair.

One thing you can do is notify the ISP/email service that the fraudster is using. That will cut them off at the knees if they cut off the account.

Kary Krismer answered:
Pricing over assessed value isn't an issue because there will be an appraisal (if one hasn't been done already).

As to the rest, it's not the down payment that is an issue. For virtually any type of loan except rehab loans the property does have to meet certain minimum standards. The needed improvements can be minor (CO detector) or major (new roof). Even if the buyer has enough cash to pay for the house without a loan, the bank is not going to make a loan without the house qualifying for the loan. ... more

My standard answer is you need to consult an attorney, and this is perhaps a good example of why. There are a lot of possible situations with different results.

The biggest issue is uncertainty over what would have occurred. Would the seller have agreed to all the proposals, some of them or none of them? It only some or none, would the buyer have backed out or just gone ahead with the deal? Would a lender require any of the requested repairs? Was there some defect in the formation of the contract that meant there really wasn't an enforceable contract?

There are just too many possible scenarios to know the buyer's recourse for the agent's alleged mistake.

I'm not sure how your MLS works, but the problem most likely is that the MLS does not have a field for MIL units, and thus Trulia cannot pick them out.
