We've had a contract on a new house for about 3 weeks, with the closing date set for this Friday. Our inspector found 3 things that needed to be addressed prior to closing, and we paid for our own contractor to do an estimate. We had our estimate in hand within 24 hours. The sellers also had a contractor come in over a week ago, but they haven't heard back from him, citing the holidays as a possible excuse. The sellers' agent then asked if he could just use our estimate to take to the sellers, stating that, to expedite the process, the sellers would just use it to give us a credit at closing, and that way we could have our own contractor do the work. We agreed. Two days later, the seller's agent tells us that the sellers still want to wait on their contractor's estimate, and that they'll then "decide how they want to negotiate"! The closing is 4 days away!! This whole thing stinks. Any recourse??
