Asked by Kathleen Webster, Minnesota • Fri Apr 13, 2012
My daughter and her husband are closing on their first home soon and last week found out there is a city assessment on it. The seller's are refusing to pay it and say if my daughter tries to force them to, they will sell all the appliances in the house in order to pay the assessment. These appliances are listed in the purchase agreement as being included with the home. My daughter's financing agency requires all appliances included be listed on a separate signed personal property addendum and that is the document that the seller's agent refuses to hand over unless my daughter agrees to pay the assessment. Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't withholding that document in order to get money from my daughter amount to extortion?? The seller's agent admitted on the phone with my daughter's agent that what he's doing is highly unethical but that he will do whatever he has to to get his clients what they want. Does my daughter have any recourse other than walking away at this point??
