Q: If investor in house purchase signs a contract then doesn't show up to closing after sellers already moved out

Contract signed Feb 10 closing was supposed to be March 10. Investor never showed gave no valid reason and doesn't look like he going to follow through. We already moved out incurring great expenses hiring movers and renting a house.
