Sold home on lease to own contract; Buyer found asbestos
I sold my home on 6mo. contract. Contract states no remodel/refurbish unless written consent by seller. Buyer tore up kitchen carpet (and cabinets!) and when I objected; he got mad and went to get his mortgage early. Mortgage inspection shows asbestos in the linoleum that is now exposed. He is now demanding I pay for asbestos removal. Does he have a valid claim? (The house had carpeted kitchen when I purchased it, home inspection was clear; I replaced carpet right after I moved in - 3 years ago.)
Contract states buyer pays for all additional expenses related to closing/mortgage/inspection, etc.
