So, It wouldn't be just "her" the buyers would sue, it would be the both of them, right? Should the sale not complete.
And the "escrow instructions", can't they both place those clauses in the instructions? If he refuses, then the sale fails and they both risk a suet, along with a missed sale opportunity.
I understand there is "NO Legal" way she can force him to include the loan be paid, but she can muck up the whole sale by refusing to continue signing papers. At this point in the sales, they must agree on escrow instructions, right?
Let me tell you some history of these two, my friend has been fighting with her stepfather for the last 10 years to sell this property and he has refused. But he has also insisted that she pay half of all the costs even though she didn't live there. She finally moved in when she turned 55yo and from that point on he has harassed her at every step, to the point where could no longer live with him. Now out of the sky blue he wants to sell, if fact its the next stage of harassment because he is insisting on using his agent and refusing to listen to her at all.
There is no mortgage on the place, only the parks lease, property tax & insurance. I don't understand what the guys problem is, there will be plenty of money left over after all is said and done, for both parties. He is just a shovenist pig who has no respect for women.
