Hi everyone, I'm at the finish line for a deal I've been really excited about but the sellers have started acting very difficult. We've been negotiating the purchase agreement, the seller note agreement, their employment agreements, etc. Normal tense conversations while negotiating but nothing out of the ordinary. The dynamic has changed between us and the sellers no longer want to speak with me without their attorney on the call. I feel there really isn't any trust between us and the relationship has deteriorated. 2 weeks ago I would have said we were absolutely going to close and now I feel it is less than 50%.

Having said all that, I still believe it's a great business, a good price, and a great fit for my search. Has anyone gone through this before? Thanks!
