We have sold our home, and attempting to purchase a condo, We have been approved, however the HOA still has not. Our move out date is a week from today. The same agent sold our home and the new condo. If the approval does not come, and its rejected because of the HOA issues, which were never told about in any depth, can we or how can we stop the sale of our home?
State/Country relating to question: Pennsylvania
nothing. the issue has just become urgent
Thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com with your question. I will provide legal information related to your question. Do you have any contingency clauses in your sales contract for your home? Such as the contract will be void if you are unable to secure a new home, etc.
Not that I am aware of.
Then once you sign a contract to sale the home unless the buyer materially breaches that contract you are obligated to fulfill the contract. If you break it the buyer can sue you for damages. Sometimes buyers will be willing to let you rent it from them for a period of time while you arrange to move out if it is after the closing date or if you ask them they may agree to postpone closing. But unfortunately it is up to the buyers at this point if they want to work with you.
Practicing Attorney for 10 years
the experience was negative the moment i was asked for a tip! You offered no advice, no referral, and asked for a tip like a fast serve waitress. You have a doctoral degree and 10 years experience as a practicing attorney. You have brought the term "AMBULANCE CHASER" to an entirely new low level of "DONT FORGET TO TIP YOUR ATTORNEY"
Disgrace to the legal community and yourself for being that "type" of attorney and allowing yourself to be degraded by agreeing to tips.
Will never use this service again and will tell everyone i know of this negative outcome.
I did not ask for a tip and I am sorry about that. The site administrator has put that in their system. I only have control over what is typed in the dialog box above. We can not refer you to attorneys that is not allowed by the site administrator and you did not ask for one for me to tell you of that policy. Also this is for information, I did try to explain you have options you could seek with the buyer to remain in your home longer but I can not tell you that you can get out of a legally binding contract when there is no way to do it. I am sorry you were unhappy.
doesnt matter who put that in their system. You choose to represent them, knowing there is a tip asked for. Very bad form. Diminishes you and your years of study and practice.
I stand by my disgust with the practice.
I want my deposit refunded, and no further interaction with this morall bankrupt site.
