    Criminal Law class 2 misdemeanor and f1 visa

    It depends on your contract. Unless it has a provision that allows them to get out I would say no, they cannot simply quit. But it depends on what you agreed upon.

    Breach of Contract by Buyer

    well, if you represented the house being built in 1979 and in reality it was built in 1963 buyer here probably has a case to get out of the contract. If I were him I would even consider fraud charges. Also look at your contract. What does it say about rescission and due diligence?
