I was in the process of buying a house but I'm having issues

Hi. I was in the process of buying a house but I'm having issues with how the loan is being handled. First the loan officer lost my paperwork (even though i found it in the packet I had prepared for him). 2nd he said I had to tweak the insurance quote, 3 times now, and its still not good enough because he is trying to tell me now that I need to pay off some credit cards immediately. He also told me the usda denied me my loan but supposedly had an appraisal done without my knowledge as I was told I needed to prepay the appraise and I told him I wanted to be there for the walk through. He sent me an invoice and said I must pay it even though I never knew the appraisal happen beJA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Please help!

Sorry to keep bothering you, but you have been the best - by

Sorry to keep bothering you, but you have been the best - by far - among the attorneys of whom I have asked questions.)You previously gave me great input on what might be considered a reasonable expectation for showings (1-2 days per week for a couple of weeks).I am hoping to get a little bit of additional perspective on that.Why?- Our landlord has been very contentious whenever I have done anything other than fully agree to his requests/demands.- I interpret the misrepresentations and - in some cases - outright fabrications in his emails as suggesting that he is on a fault finding mission- We have 5 months left on our leaseI tried being nice, but now want as little exposure to him as possible.What would be a reasonable minimum number of hours per week that I might agree to for showings? 2? 4? more?When you wrote '1-2 days per week for a couple of weeks'... what would be a reasonable minimum after that?Thanks!Steve

We moved out of state due to lack of employment, we have friends living in our house, I shopped for new homeowners insurance, an inspector talked to one of the people living in our house, he told the inspector we were not living there and that he was a 'tenant". They do pay rent but it does not cover the mortgage payment. I recvd a cancellation letter from the ins co. because I do not live there. I told ins co. I do stay there 2 times per year and I still have all the utilities in my name, I had told the ins co. it was a "2nd home". Will I be able to get HO ins with anyone?

Q!y husband and I are trying to refinance our home. In doing

Q!y husband and I are trying to refinance our home. In doing so we found that the "trustee", a lawyer filed the deed do trust three times on one construction loan. Twice in our county a done in an adjoining county. Also, the bank never filed lien releases for either of the supposed loans (which was really only one) but looks like two or three. Is this trustee at fault? Also, shouldn't the bank release these liens? The bank has no record in their files because it has been 12 years. Can we sue the lawyer for falsely filing multiple liens and can we sue the bank for not doing what the law requires. We are in North Carolina. Thanks, ***** *****JA: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: As I stated we are in North Carolina.JA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: Everything is completed for a refinance except the multiple lien releases. This is holding up everything and also costing us hundreds of dollars extra because of the intense investigations for title searches.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I contacted the lawyer or trustee about why they were falsely filed multiple deeds do trust and he cursed me and then hung up the phone on me. He was very rude and I threatened to file a complaint to the bar. I also told him he owed us the extra it was costing us. He says his attorney will handle it when I sue him.
