We are/were under contract on an unoccupied short sale in Maine. A week before our closing date, we took our kids to see the house and to do some measuring for flooring and check paint swatches. When we arrived, we were greeted with water pouring from the pot lights in the kitchen, the main floor bath was flooded, etc..long story short...the pipes had burst because the oil tank had run out of oil. The bank has stated that they will not pay for fixing any damage that has occurred. We are walking because it is clearly not our responsibility to pay for this. We initially wanted to go after the the bank to get ALL of our money back (deposit, appraisal, inspection and septic design fee) as it due to the someone else's negligence that we are not following through with the purchase of the home, but we just found out that the seller's realtor agreed to take on the role of property manager and "promised" to watch over the property. Since it was HER negligence, can we sue HER to get our $ back?!
