The answer is no. There is no such state law, I am afraid.

Please note: If I tell you simply what you wish to hear, this would be unfair to you. I need to be honest with you and sometimes this means providing information that is not optimal. Negative ratings are reserved rudeness or wrong information. Please be kind!

A closing question. Effective date of contract to buy 2/19.
Effective date of contract to buy 2/19. 2 extensions signed by both sides till 4/6. Buyer working with National Lending and after about a month of sending in info denied for not enough income. Rather than give up they added niece as co-borrower which was approved by underwriters. Just before closing found FHA had reciently changed rules and deleted niece as co-borrower do that loan dead. Rather than give up buyer worked to have father added ad co-borrower. on 4/6 buyer sent seller an explaination of all this and father would be added on in few days, and requested buyer to accept extension or cancel. Buyer is novice in realestate things. Since CD must be issued at least 3 days before closing seller knew no closing on 4/6 and apparently waited till closing date to contact buyer to trap her to cancel and get buyers 2,000 escrow for non-specific performance clause. Buyer has worked more dilligently than humanly possible to make salr happen, Will she get her 2,000 escrow back or will she have chance if goes to arbatration? … read more
