Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
We've been careful not to be pushy since at the inception of all of this, we were told by the realtor that showed us the property that they (she and the listing agent) were confident because the listing agent had closed a deal and knew the Short Sale team. Mind you, this offer was submitted on April 7, seller signed off and listing agent submitted it along with the SS package to the bank (Sun Trust). There has been apparent apathy on the listing agent's end of it. Unreturned calls/e-mails to the realtor working with us or answering after much time passing. Everytime we have pushed, we receive word of a stall out in the process. We haven't even received a yes or no, counter or acceptance from the bank. There are still other hurdles and I don't think we'll make it now. My thought is that we obtain a lawyer that will dig in and not stop until someone comes forth with an answer. I'm not sure what the legislation that passed to push these transactions through has accomplished for others, but for us, it has been abominable. Should we get an attorney, invest that fee portion to at least have a chance to salvage about $4,000 of the $6,500 my fiance is eligible for being a long time homeowner?
