Good afternoon. Thank you for using JUST ANSWERYou did not finish your question, but it was probably asking if you can get out of the contract at this stage. My answer is: Probably not. Once the offer has been accepted by both buyer and seller, the contract becomes enforceable at law by either one of them, unless there is specific language that permits one or the other to withdraw. Absent that, if you withdraw from the contract at this point, you are risking a lawsuit damages and/or specific performance .

I know this is not an answer you were hoping to hear, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide our customers with correct answers.
