A: A Pennsylvania attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. I could only speak for the insurance elements of your question, since you posted under Insurance Bad Faith. It could depend on the insurer's policy limits and whether it is a loss covered by the policy terms. A real estate attorney would have insight into the contract issues, but they would need to know more about the sale and the contract. Good luck
