You need to stop posting threads. You're just a glutton for punishment. You already know it's not worth pursuing legally, so just get it done. Borrow your parents' mower for the lawn, and borrow their weed whip for the smaller long section and just walk around hacking it down. Or if it's not that small, go to Peter's Hardware in Highland and rent their walk behind brush hog for a couple hours. Problem solved. Figure something out to get you by for now(it's getting late in the summer so before long it'll only need mowing every other week at most) then once your new finances are figured out(like it or not, you're in for a serious shock), get yourself a good tractor. Not an overkill $15k compact do-it-all beast, but something good, adequate, and reliable. It's your first house, you're young, and you're not gonna have the best of the best yet. Don't go overboard buying sh1t bigger than you need. You'll need to buy A LOT of that stuff, and if you follow your normal trend of going overboard on it all, you'll quickly be in the poor house.
You don't know what you are talking about. Once you buy a house, you have spent all the money you will ever need to spend on it. Pay the house payment and insurance and the rest is money in the bank. Nothing ever happens to the fridge, stove, dishwasher, furnace, AC, water softener, well, garage door opener, screen door, TV, etc. Furniture is free that you got with the house or from your parents so no money spent there. The roof will last forever. He should buy the top of the line mower because it will last forever and will never give him issues.......... it's true because the salesman told him so.
Life "IS" fair and the sellers owe him to cut the lawn. They sure are assholes. Little did they know that he would get even by turning an internet forum against them. He showed them!
Andy, if this is the worst thing that happens to you when buying this house, you should send the sellers a gift certificate to an expensive restaurant. As you dig deeper into the house, (if you ever do) you will find things that need to be fixed, repaired, replaced that you never expected. Home ownership is not static, it is an ever changing event that requires way more work than you anticipated.
Go mow the fucking lawn.
