Problem solved until recent excessive rain. So partner is (finally) installing a sump pump - something he's done lots of times in his business. He's very good. Well the buyers came by and he's... "A talker". But the basement is dry just mid-install of sump pump. So that was a mess. I hesitated when I heard the buyers were coming by. Why? Still deciding? Apparently.
We have a signed contract (their second) and I'm letting my partner handle this. He's going to hold their feet to the fire.

Got the little document to sign, letting the posers/buyers of the hook. "Health reasons". My partner is taking this to his attorney. I'm ignoring it for now.

How frustrating. I don't think health reasons are an excuse people can use to get their earnest money back, unless it's spelled out in the contract.
