Asked by mrs40g, Portland, OR • Thu Jan 31, 2013
I entered into a purchase agreement for a home. I offered full asking price, but asked for a fence to be included in the sale of the home. In addition to the Sales Contract, there was an addendum to the contract indicating the features of the home, what it included etc. It also stated that the seller would provide a fence in the backyard upon closing. Following the signing of the contract, the appraisal was ordered and the house came back $25,000 less than the asking price. The seller agreed to come down to the appraised value, but decided to omit the fence. A change order to the contract was written and signed by the seller indicating that seller will not be providing a fence. I, the buyer decided to not move forward with the sale, did not sign the change order, and told the buyer I refuse their counter offer, and will not be moving forward with the sale. The seller has now indicated they will be suing for Breach of Contract. Am I, the buyer, still liable?
