If both parties have signed the Residential Purchase Agreement, and one of the contingencies that allow the seller to back out wasn't triggered, then a buyer may have a valid claim for breach of contract. In all likelihood, you would be well-served by speaking to a local attorney and having them hear the whole story and review all the paperwork.
