Hello and welcome.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I am sorry to hear of your difficult situation. Before I can give you an accurate answer to your question, please provide the following additional information:
What is the contingency in the contract--that you obtain financing?
I look forward to assisting you as soon as I have received this information. Thank you.
Yes, there is a contingency to obtain financing for a certain amount. The pre-approval came out to about $900.00 less than the mortgage amount in the offer, and this is the base before renovation financing, which is supposed to be added to that amount.
There is also an inspection contingency where buyer can terminate after inspection - I made an appointment with an inspector but cancelled it after getting the pre-approval since no matter what is found I will not be able to finance it. We already know it needs a kitchen, all appliances, some windows and the water is shut off because of some problems with plumbing and heating.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX a preapproval alone enough to satisfy the failure to obtain financing at the stated terms? My realtor is insisting I need to actually apply and be rejected before I can get out of this.
What about the Pennsylvania opt out law I read about online.
Section 3406 of Title 68 of Pennsylvania's Code defines a right called "Purchaser's Right To Cancel." It gives the buyer until 15 days before the property closing to cancel the contract for any reason whatsoever.
Thank you for your positive rating of my service. It has been my pleasure to assist you and I hope you will ask for me should a future legal need arise.
When you receive your Customer Satisfaction Survey from JustAnswer, please do rate me highly (9-10). It benefits my ability to assist you and other customers, and would be tremendously appreciated.
Thanks again and all the best to you.
