3 years ago we got into an agreement for rent to own home.

3 years ago we got into an agreement for rent to own home. We gave 10000 down payment to go toward the purchase. I had some health issues and we have not been able to obtain a mortgage. We have been using the owners finance recommendation for broker. The owner keeps raising the price of the home because of market and our improvements. Now he says that if the mortgage doesn't go through by June 30th, we lose our 10000 and they will put the house on the open market.

I have a client (I'm a Realtor) that that is having a home

I have a client (I'm a Realtor) that that is having a home built on a land. She was got a construction loan. Well the Lender I sent her to was not that adept at doing construction loans (I found out after the fact). Well I wasn't updated on the progress during this, not unusual for this part, but after she closed she was contacted by a guy who said he was the owner of the lot and needed her to sign an unimproved land contract. We didn't know he owned the land. The builder gave the impression he owned it. Never corrected me, the Lender, the Escrow agent, no one. Well this gentleman that owned the property (investor/developer) went ahead and signed the deed over and did get paid. I told her not to sign the contract. I told him we couldn't sign it after the fact. He wants something stating he sold it to her for "IRS" purposes and for his personal records. I was going to just write up a simple statement saying she (her name) bought this land with the legal description of the land from him (his name) and have her sign it. My Broker said she didn't want me to do that cause she didn't want me to get in trouble. She said just send the signed contract I have with her and the builder (who didn't even own the land). I just want to do the right thing since this turned out to be so confusing for everyone. Not sure what to do?

We have been paying on a lease to own property for the last

We have been paying on a lease to own property for the last 5 years in SC. At first the person selling this property did not charge us interest, but the last 2 years he has been charging interest and we are listed as the buyer on all documents (he is or was a realestate agent) this month we have fallen behind on our April payment and just received an email from him that he is going to start the eviction notice tomorrow if we don't provide April's payment in full by tomorrow. We are typically on time with our payments. As he is acting as a mortgage broker by charging interest, can he evict us like this if we cannot come up with our payment by tomorrow?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: South CarolinaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not yetJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
