the answer to that is "yes".... that sign off sheet is nonsense in front of a judge...if the work is not finished, it needs to be... there's a purchase and sales agreement that holds weight in court.... hopefully there is an agreement that describes the work to be done...

I suspect that the buyer's remedy may be in the courts.

They can always seek - but it may be more difficult to prevail.

I think, it is state to state thing. We usually schedule a walk through 5 days prior to closing of Escrow.There is plenty of time for the seller to correct any conditions.

Hi Jill,
I can't speak on any other state other than Arizona, and you are right about walk thru plus any agreed upon items on BINSR.  As per purchase contract shall be done by 3 days prior to closing. 


As per Arizona REALTOR® Magazine – June 2013 | Disclosure:

Yes, assuming the facts are accurate, the buyer may pursue claims and damages for the non-repaired items after COE. Although the buyer completed the walkthrough and escrow had closed, he/she was relying on the seller’s statements and assurances. If the seller made false statements regarding the repair, the buyer can seek to recover the cost of the repairs.

The final walk through is to verify the property is in substantially the same condition as when the offer to purchase was made.

The buyer's remedy at this point is small claims court.  I suppose they could also go to mediation.
