I purchased a home in Ohio in November, and moved in in December. The backyard has no grass. One-half was a garden, the other was their dog-run. The sellers were landscapers, and the listing sheet states "The current owner will reseed the back yard." I had several conversations with the seller during the purchase proceedings as to how this would be handled. We came to the agreement that we would get in touch with each other in the spring to set it up. Unfortunately, this was not written into the contract, and now the seller claims he thought he didn't have to do anything because of that, despite our verbal agreement. I have attempted to compromise in good faith by offering to help with the manual labor, and I am still getting the runaround. Do I have any legal recourse because of the realtor's ad sheet, even though it is not in the sales contract?
