“Just want to emphasize that this is already a done deal.
The transfer taxes paid, Deed recorded, whole nine yards.
I did offer to sell it back at my cost plus $10,000 but
they are backing away from that option and now they just want more money. (EXTORTION).”
You have the deed? The fighting side of me says listen to your lawyer and wait for the court date.
I would explain that you allowed them to stay with the understanding that they had to be out by the 18th. Since that is not working you won’t make a payment until they leave.
It does not seem that they care for their credit, just getting the money.
It does not seem that you have a lot of options other than the eviction. Unless you went to them to demand your money, plus fee’s, back. I would listen to your lawyer at this time.
I wouldn’t sweat one or two month’s lost money. Just don’t make the next payment until they are out. Escrow it with your lawyer if you have to, to keep everything on the up and up.
Just some thoughts…
