In regards ***** ***** last question :We have been honest with full disclosure the whole time with our agent and title company. Should I get a copy of the inspection form so if there was something on there they did not ask for us to fix i will know they already knew about it? We did not have hardly anything to repair after inspection but I just don't want them to ask for stuff later. I have a right to the inspection form right?I am a first time seller in a hot real estate market where people are desperate for houses so I want to be as careful as possible

I'm closing soon on my coach home (condo). Unit built in 2013. Home inspection fine. I have a concern about upstairs toilet flushing noise. It never concerned us as others have the same issue, so I didn't mention it, but I'm concerned buyer might have an issue. Should I chalk it up to condo living and not be concerned?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FLJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: All pre closing documentsJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not at this time

16 mths ago, I purchased a home. Had a home inspection done

16 mths ago, I purchased a home. Had a home inspection done which was submitted to seller. Seller supposedly made the repairs especially to the roof and gutters; however, it was painted over and the repairs were not done! Closing was pushed backed several times because of the supposed repairs; however, I have a bucket at my window seal due to rain pouring in like a faucet. WHAT CAN I DO and WHO CAN HELP ME! I'm disabled and receives SSDI and I believe/know that I've been defrauded and nobody cares that I've spent my hard earned money to purchase and less than a one year and a half the roof is leaking so bad that I will have to leave the home!

We have an email agreement to purchase the house we are in

We have an email agreement to purchase the house we are in by June 15th 2017. We sent $6000.00 earnest money almost a year ago and have received no receipt ( we have copy of cashiers check and receipt of certified mail) and the sellers never completed the purchase sale contract. We have received a letter that we are to be out of the house by May 1st 2017 so as they (sellers) can remodel the house and sell for a much higher price than we agreed. I did make an offer of $290,000 due to home inspection from year ago, repairs needed, and Realtor thoughts along with tax evaluations and sent pre-approval letter to sellers and sale email states (from a year ago), we would purchase for $320,000. We were still seeking additional financing for the $320,000 but sellers told us we had to be out by May 1st so we switched gears to get into another place rather than run the risk of homelessness or tied up in court ultimatly spending all our cash on attorneys. Question is, are we entitled to our earnest money back since sellers did not complete purchase sale agreement, and are evicting us before the June 15th 2017 as our emails between both partys states?

I have asthmatic kids that are not medicated for wheezing since move in. I thought it was just the open ceilings and floors from the malfunctioning toilet flood but now have found many as I said what looks purposeful in hiding issues . is there any recourse ?

In Virginia if a buyer makes an offer with A contingency for a home inspection on a residential home, and the seller makes a counter offer on the Price but grants the home inspection and gives the buyer three days for discovery can the seller sell the house to another buyer before the original buyer that is under contract has an opportunity to perform the home inspection?
