Welcome aboard the forums Rob!
If it’s their mistake then it seems they should be liable for the cost. If your contract and email communications both omit the extra expenses then you should have a very strong case. But there will be many forum members who have experience with this aspect of real estate (or law) so hopefully they can help you out. I have experience in neither.
If it were me, I’d put my evidence together (contract + emails), assert that it’s very clear cut, but then offer to make a compromise with them (maybe split the costs?). This will give them a more palatable option to agree with and help both of you stay out of court.
