So my fiance and I closed on our new house last week and took possession yesterday. When we started moving stuff in, we noticed that the refrigerator and window treatments were gone even though they were included in the contract. We called our agent to find out what the deal was - he said that the sellers sold the refrigerator on craigslist and refused to offer us any compensation. We're not sure what happened with the window treatments. Our agent and the seller's agent offered to give us $1000 towards the purchase of a new refrigerator so we don't have to go through arbitration/mediation/small claims court.
Is it worth it to try and sue them? Does accepting the $1000 from the realtors forfeit our ability to litigate?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
