Seller's lawyer gave incorrect information

Asked by Josh K, Jersey City, NJ Wed May 21, 2014

We are purchasing a house and the sidewalk in front is torn up from tree roots. In our contract negotiations with the seller, they claim that it is the town's problem, and our lawyers agreed. Turns out that isn't the case, and it is indeed the owners responsibility. This will now cost us a substantial amount of money to fix. What can we do? We already signed off on their response, and need to close by the end of the month.
