Is it a good idea to get a home inspection for a new build? I don't know anything about home building so how can I know if its been done right?
It's a good idea to have a home inspected prior to purchase even if it's a new build. Mistakes are made during construction and you need to be aware of them. Good luck!

Is it typical that the seller holds up the process and causes the buyer to loose an interest rate lock?
sellers want to move their property - in my experience it has been the seller's agent who may lag at at times.

If a foreclosure home is under contract and someone breaks in and steals cabinets and etc. what are my rights?
Do not close until resolved and do not release yourself from the contract... they will have a hard time selling the property until they address the issue.
