Saint Paul, MN asked in Contracts for Minnesota

Q: Can seller change legal description of property after signed purchase agreement by buyer?

The property in dispute is the number assigned parking slot that seller verbally gave to neighbor. The buyer still gets the same type of space, just a different number. Seller was not aware that the exact # was even part of the condo description.
