Caledonia, MI asked in Real Estate Law for Michigan

Q: In disclosure the seller said a hot tub would not stay. We asked to keep in via the PA, they signed it. Who has rights?

The sellers are now saying they will not leave the hot tub despite the PA agreement they signed. Not sure how to proceed.

A: From the information provided, it appears that you have a contract to purchase the tub. The sellers should comply with it or they risk a suit by you.

A: A purchase agreement is a legally binding contract. Generally speaking, If the seller represents that an item will remain at the home after the sale, then they need to leave that item when they close on the home. See more at www.provenresource.com

A: I would ignore the seller's disclosure statement. The later executed purchase agreement controls the contractual relationship. The seller's must comply with its terms.
