I agree with Nikki. You should have done a final walk through to make sure that the repairs were done. If they were not done at the time of closing, a repair escrow should have been set up to cover the costs or to insure that the repairs are done. Now all you can do is get the receipts to show the work has been done. Your agent will have to stay on top of this and get those receipts.

What sort of contingencies are we dealing with here Sir?

Resolve, what is your definition of "FIXED" and what is their definition of "FIXED" ?

Further resolve, what is the definition of "FIXED" on paper? (refer to addendum/contract)

Note: keep in mind, you "JUST CLOSED THE DEAL".

You may need to speak with your (paid) Attorney or simply contact a local student Attorney for (free) advice.

Your agent should be involved in this matter. You must demand a copy of the receipt for the work on Monday and If it isnt given to your agent then get your agent to talk with the other agent. Unfortunately, you shouldnt have closed the deal wo this receipt and both of you taking a final walkthru to be sure the repairs had been done.
