In the SC Agreement of Sale there is a section regarding home warranty. In this case buyer and seller agreed that a home warranty would be provided up to $583 paid by the seller at closing.Who gets to order the warranty
Response 1: The Seller.
and if the buyer found a policy for $583 and the seller found a comparable policy from a reputable policy for $399 must the seller pay the $583?
Response 2: No. The Agreement is for up to $583.00 and not $583.00 exactly.
Can't tell if my initial follow up went through. I noticed you were licensed in NY and MA. Your response is your interpretation of the SC law. Does the seller order because they are paying for the warranty? If the payment of the warranty was coming from the buyer funds then would the buyer order?
