I'm selling my house "as is condition", received an offer

Good morning. I'm selling my house "as is condition", received an offer from prequalified buyer who was willing to close deal in 21-30 days. After I accepted offer was informed by my realtor that buyer changed condition and will use financing through FHA loan and some repairs should be done in my house for FHA inspection. I don't have money for those repairs and specified that my house sells in condition " as is". My realtor told that buyer is willing to do repairs by himself before inspectin and they willing to sign agreement if they don't get approve for loan through FHA I won't be responsible for cost if repairs.I'm feel very unsecured by letting someone in my house to do repairs while house is still not sold. I do live in California.Please need legal advice ASAP

RayThe case you provided was great! Attitudes are improving- looks like Audit showing EMC Mortgage LLC has been a defunct business since May 18, 2011, did the trick. I need to submit the amended Certified Forensic Loan Auditor Report and his Affidavit into Court. Should I draft a notice to the US District Court and attach the documents?

I was a contractor doing home improvements (closed the business over a year ago) the last job i did was for a "friend" and i was only paid a little more than half the money. On my contract i installed windows and had a interior door to the garage and a french door. After seeing where they wanted the french door i told them i didnt have the expertise.

Where do you practice in Texas? These Sellers are now

Richard, Where do you practice in Texas? These Sellers are now wanting our attorney to contact their attorney to "work something out". Our mindset is: there is nothing to work out other than they need to sign the amendment and perform under the current real estate contract. This is getting absolutely ridiculous and these Sellers are making it very difficult and complicated. We just want to buy a house for goodness sake! A phone call may be in order to explain to you the whole ordeal!

I have a tenant under a 1 year lease agreement that she paid

Hi, I have a tenant under a 1 year lease agreement that she paid in full and in advance. She contacted me over a month ago stating that she was moving out on May 15 because she bought a new home and that we can start showing the house. We've put the house on sale and found a buyer, only now the tenant is refusing to move out unless I pay her back 2 months of rent which I refused because this is simply blackmail. I want to have her evicted but this will take several months and the lease originally ends on July 31. What are my legal options?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: texasJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: what do you mean by paperworkJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

I need a California HOA lawyer, california, I bought a condo

I need a California HOA lawyerJA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state the association is in?Customer: californiaJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: I bought a condo in San Clemente in January to use as a second home and vacation spot for me and my friends and family, filling in with paying guests between our visits. I did a lot of due diligence before buying and bought one in which the HOA and city have minimum 30-day lease requirement. None of the 4 guests I've had has stayed for the full 30 days but I have reserved the property for 30 days every time. The HOA is up in arms, claims I'm doing short term rentals and am a hotel even though it is vacant most of the time due to the 30 day restriction, and that should be better for them than people who stay the whole time! Now they are talking about imposing a 90-day minimum, which I think would be a partial taking of my property rights since it was 30 days when I bought it. They also fined me $250 which I have not paid, as I am only renting it once every 30 days. Please advise.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I tried writing to HOA, & attending their meeting. The mgmt company has failed to respond to my written request for a list of homeowners, and won't give me Board members emails either, and suggested I write the Board and explain the 30-day per renter restriction that I am following but they failed to forward it to the Board as promised. They fined me without following their own requirements for a hearing for me; they kicked my rep out of their monthly meeting to go into executive session about this!
