What Legal Recourse Does A Buyer Or Seller Have In Florida If The Other Party Refuses To Close

If the seller breaches a contract and basically refuses to close on a property in the state of Florida, the buyer has potentially the remedy of specific performance. Of course, this must be drafted into the contract before the parties execute a contract. A specific performance, essentially the buyer is asking for the court to force the seller to sell the property to the buyer, that all the other terms and conditions of the contract has been met. In addition to that, or instead of that, the buyer could potentially sue for damages on the contract if the seller refuses to close.
