welcome to home ownership. Go cut your grass. That will be the least of your issues.

My realtor suggested the small claims approach. It was wrote in the contract to be cut one last time before closing. Since the sellers live out of state they don't gave a fawk. I don't want to dick with small claims. Just wish they would keep to their word. In court I would win hand down as I Have a signed document from them stating it would be done and proof that it isn't but the time investest in court equals loss of time and money for me. I get screwed more with no lube or reach around.

Besides the filling of the fuel oil tank the grass is the top of my issues The only things left that could fail are the septic field or the foundation. This house is rock solid!

Did you write in to your purchase agreement a (mine was) 500.00 that the sellers pay if all terms of the purchase agreement aren't met? That should have been collected/ taken out of their check at closing. Sounds like your Realtor dropped the ball by not ensuring all aspects of the purchase agreement were met and allowing you to close. I'd say your shit outta luck. After all aspects of the purchase agreement hadn't been met, I would have either delayed the closing, or insisted on being paid the amount written in, to pay to have the aspects met.

I'd say small claims would get you now where. When you signed for the house you agreed that the terms of the purchase agreement had been met by the seller and had no objections.

Seriously, you're wondering what to do about mowing the fucking lawn?

I agree with the above, the way it should have been handled, is with some money being held in escrow.

At this point, I would just mow the lawn. TO me, its like separating scrap metal. I figure time is worth $100-$200 an hour, so if I need to spend hours selling cheap parts, scrapping metal, or, doing small claims court to get a couple bucks, not worth the time. Maybe you have more time or its less valuable.

Prinicples, getting even, etc, bah, get over it. Won't be the last time in life it happens.

I'll be mowing the lawn more so angry about a breach of contract but its just grass. No doubt you would be miffed to if roles reversed but this is my bitch

On the plus side I have a beautiful home with at least 75k put into it within the last 10 years and I bought it for less then the seller originally played for it in 1998. Fucked on the grass but a win everywhere else on the home front.

Time to get my Manuel Labour on!

We had a similar issue when we moved into our current house. I found a lawn company and the issue was resolved. Once you sign that property is yours, well and the bank that financed you.

Oh Andy, you're in for a rude awakening. I wish you the best of luck.


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.

Hmm...the rest is 2' tall grass?
You need to bale that shit, not cut it.
If you do "borrow" a lawn mower plan on buying a new one to replace the one you kill trying to "mow" with.

Just to stir the pot a little. How do you know that the sellers stopped paying for lawn service? For all you know maybe they dumped their money pit and are now on a cruise somewhere celebrating getting out from under it(the reason they are unresponsive to inquiries) and maybe the lawn guys were hosing them. You said they do live outta state after all. Not like they were around the corner keeping an eye on the place 24/7.

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.
