i am from new york, and my wife and i recently were in the process of buying some land that had never been on the market. through searching town records, my wife found out the owner and we eventually made an offer on the land, an offer she accepted! she then had contracts written up by her lawyer to start the rest of the proceedings. we agreed to use a lawyer from the same firm to make it easier, so we thought, we then were in the process of finding the best loan to purchase the land, and the seller, without any notification, sold the land to another party! keep in mind, this land had been vacant for almost 20 years before we inquired about it! the seller did not seem to be in any type of hurry to get rid of the land, untill after we made the offer she accepted! then all of a sudden she sells it out from under our feet, to an unidentifed buyer! please someone help me here, is ther anything we can do? we trusted her and had her word, not to mention the actual documents the lawyer had drafted for the closing of the deal! can we stop the sale and get the land back? is this considerd a breech of contract? we had her word, and niehter her or her lawyer said anyting about the other party until the deal was done! is this unethical or what?
