Unexpected delays in roof repair delayed closing on home causing unexpected rent of $1600. can that be claimed as a loss?

We were moving to home from another state 2200 mi away and had no other living option until repairs done, a second appraisal completed and closing set for 16 days after initial agreed upon date. Seller did not monitor repair schedule.

No. That is a personal living expense and it is not deductible.
