I sometimes go to settlement without checking back on a property I haven’t seen for a month. That’s careless and opens me up to the very problem you have (or worse).
If you talk to an attorney (or the seller or the agents involved), I think he’ll tell you that you should have done a walk-through prior to settlement. Further, that the terms of a RE contract don’t survive the settlement. That means that when you sign everything at settlement, those documents replace your purchase contract. The terms of the purchase contract are no longer enforceable.
I’m no lawyer, so I may be wrong…but, I don’t think so.
