Actually, it's 2 homes, $250k/ea, $500k is all my savings. Age 66 now retired, feel better w/cash on hand. Just came out of selling 2 homes & made hasty decision to buy 2 more. Bad decision now that I'm not working
Lawyer: INFOLAWYER, Attorney replied 11 months ago
You can cancel if seller misled or agree or contract has a cancellation clause. If you didn't close you don't need to and the risk is losing deposit. If seller misled or contract permits, You want to prepare your case by creating a time line starting from the earliest event. For each event, write down key details and witnesses and if there is a document that relates to it, save it and refer to it. This timeline can be very valuable in narrating your case and presenting it later in a concrete and specific way. Local counsel can also negotiate. martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options. Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding "yes" or "acceptable"

I don't mind losing deposit but Mattamy homes won't let me out. What do I do?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
You mention, if you didn't close, you don't need to...you lose deposit' How can I do this?
Lawyer: INFOLAWYER, Attorney replied 11 months ago
The seller cannot force you to close. It would retain the deposit and find a new buyer.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
