We've always had some issues with water in the basement... but our house is near the river, at a low point of the development, and the ground is pretty much all clay... so it was pretty much expected.
The buyer was told it was going to be a lot of money to fix it and wanted us to help pay (which isn't/wasn't possible). Our Realtor brought in a waterproofing guy and he gave an estimate way lower than what the buyer was told... and we had a plumber come out and verify that the plumbing was all like it should be... but the buyer still backed out.
We're not really sure what's going to happen now. Our house is still on the market and now has an active status again, but we haven't heard back anything from the bank. At this point, as much as I don't want it to happen, I think I'd be okay with a foreclosure so we can stop having to worry about it and deal with it.
We've had to leave our utilities on ... and we just got our water bill. It's almost $80... and we haven't lived there for the whole billing period. I called to ask why and apparently its the minimum for just having the water on. The lady said that the minimum price is for 0-500 gallons of water used... so silly!
