Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I really don't know why the seller is not signing off. I understand that the escrow papers stipulated that all parties need to sign off but, as I stated, previously, we never signed the escrow papers, only the RE agreement.Even our RE agent can't understand why the sellers have not signed off.
Perhaps their just upset that the deal did not go through. But it is in escrow now so I just don't understand the problem
Thank you, Jacquie
We started escrow on April 29th, 2013. I have documented every conversation we've had with escrow. Our RE agent and the escrow co. were notified that we could not obtain financing.
We certainly made every effort to obtain financing but as you've probably heard the economy tanked and we were left with foreclosures--we are in the construction business. Our loan officer told us, perhaps in another year, we might be able to purchase a home since our last foreclosure was in Nov. 2012. So much for trying to get ahead in life.
We notified our RE agent and she notified the sellers that we could not qualify.
We notified the escrow co. approx. 14 days after escrow accepted our check. Therefore, there was no need for an inspection. Our escrow was for 30 days.
I just would like to know if it is at all possible to lien the sellers property before their escrow closes, since they do not seem to want to sign off.
Thank you, Jacquie
Thank you for all your help. It's very much appreciated.
Have a great weekend.
