I had a land contract for 36 months that ballooned in October 2013. I submitted my mortgage application for approval, but when they pulled the credit report there was a derogatory information that needed to be cleaned up. The application was put on hold and I have been working earnestly to take care of it. Finally, here we are in March, 2014 and looks like I will be successful in the removal within the next thirty days. I have been making my timely payments all a long. Now the seller is threatening to file default on the home. Do I have any grounds to keep my investment going forward?
