My wife and I had a ratified contract as of 5/10/15 with as is contingency, appraisal and finance, HOA. They are preapproved for the correct amount and the house will appraise for the amount they need. They are asking to be released from their contract due to the document (HOA). However, we submitted to get the HOA and haven't gotten it. So they haven't received the HOA documents. It seems like they are having second thoughts and using the HOA which they haven't received as a way to get out. Our house due to this has been off the market for over 10 days. Is it possible for us not to sign the release and is there any way to get part of the 10,000 escrow. Thanks
