    Could someone please provide me with some advice regarding what rights as a buyer do I have if the seller is trying to get out of the contract? The case in question is where the deposit has been paid and contracts signed (in Western Australia).

    Kind Regards,

    Have contracts been exchanged? If so, they are enforceable. Did they have any conditions which may allow them to back out? If not, then they may be locked it.

    Better talk to a solicitor quick.

    It just depends on what is written in the contract. I have seen some contracts that allow the seller to withdraw without penalty. What does your contract say?
