Much of the law is about settling. You clearly haven't had occasion to internalize this lesson. That's a good thing.
Anyways...it's a small deal, yes, but you don't know the full context and I don't take well to being pushed around by anyone. Especially corporations that sup on my money.
I know enough of the context: you saw the property. This was not a hidden feature, something only an expert could discern, etc. You screwed up, and not only do you not seem to realize that, you are here making stupid comments like, "I will have to contact my
RE lawyer." The thought you have an RE lawyer is ludicrous. If you had said, "I'll have to contact an RE lawyer" your level of pompousness and idiocy would have been much lower.
To the bolded: lulz. Come talk to me after you have gone through numerous arbitrations with millions on the table.
