I closed on a 2nd home back in Sept. I decided not to do an escrow. When I got my tax bill I found the numbers did not add up to expected from closing so I inquired.

Turns out I over paid in closing about $800 on the fee line in closing costs. Anyway, turns out that portion was to be paid by the buyer (initialed area). Any discrepancies will be resolved between buyer & seller. Confirmed by the title company some correspondence and phone calls were made to the buyer. It has been a couple months and several attempts by phone and email to get this taken care of. No response from buyer.

Not a life or death thing but $800 is $800

Any thoughts on my next course of action?

Small claims court maybe if all else fails.

send them a certified letter with a copy of the contract, closing statement and the tax bill. give them 30 days if you don't have it in 15 days send them a another letter (again certified). talk to an attorney before you do anything because taking a buyer to court can back fire badly even if you are in the right.
