We just purchased a house and sellers are liquidating items that were part of our contract. What are our rights?

North Hollywood, CA |

We just bought a house and have just learned that the sellers have sold several items that were listed in the sales contract including appliances and yard features. We have already closed escrow, how should we proceed since they have broken our contract?

  1. Best answer

    Sue for breach of contract and conversion of personal property.


  2. One would need to read the contract but without doing so i can make these suggestions. If there was money held back in escrow then you can make a claim in escrow. If not you can ask them to replace these items. When you say you closed escrow did yo not take posession of the property? A letter from an attorney may pursuade them to pay. You may be required to go to mediation or arbitration depending upon your contract. We along with alot of other attorneys will give free consultations so you may want to seek an attorney to review the contract.
