La Crosse, WI asked in Real Estate Law for Wisconsin

Q: I made offer to purchase a home. 3 days b4 closing seller did not have heirs permission to sell

They asked for 2 weeks extension, I complied, they then asked for 30 days extension, I reluctantly complied again. Now that date is nearing and was just informed the seller has a court date set for 2 weeks after this latest extension date to try to get permission to sell. Can I sue to get my appraisal fee and inspection fee and walk away from this?

A: Probably. One would need to review the offer to provide the most accurate advice. But it seems apparent that the seller misrepresented his or her authority.
