Tenant (seller’s crazy nephew) not vacating. No word on survey. [IL]

There is a crazy man that harasses the neighbors in the house I am supposed to close on, on Monday. This is my first time ever under contract for a home.

The sellers have been playing hard ball and seemingly want out of the contract. Their attorney says the crazy nephew was served a notice to vacate over 30 days ago, and is still there. Said nothing about filing anything with the courthouse. They have previously said things about having other offers. The other offers are the crazy nephew that can’t afford the place, and the daughter of the neighbors. The neighbor’s daughter only wants to buy the house to get the crazy nephew out. I have also heard that the crazy man has a sign about her in one of the windows now.

I have in the contract that the house is to be delivered vacant. My realtor and everyone else on my end knew that this guy was a potential pain point.

The sellers have not been too cooperative from the get go. We were supposed to do an inspection in the first 10 days. We scheduled it for a Sunday along with the appraisal. Crazy nephew wouldn’t let that happen, so we didn’t get to inspect at that time. Eventually, the appraiser got in and everything checked out, other than needing termite treatment. My bank wants that before close, but we probably need a vacant property to do that. I also have to pay for it.

My realtor has been asking about a survey for six weeks, and there has been radio silence on that.

 

Do buyers have any recourse if the sellers just don’t care about the contract? The sellers own a new car dealership, so I would think they know what a contract is. Then again, car dealers love screwing people over. I may not be able to afford a house, and certainly not one as nice, if this doesn’t close soon. Rate lock ends on the 28th

Will I be able to get the house, with the same monthly payments as planned, if I sue for specific performance? What if the sellers try to sell it again after they blow me off?
