The listing agent would request that information from the seller. Usually, the seller will receive that type of information throughout the year. When reviewing the information, pay special attention to any pending special assessments as well as the amount of reserves. If you submit an offer without the information, be sure to include a contingency that the information contained in the documents are subject to your approval.... more
Work with an exclusive buyer broker next time and there wont be any conflicts of interests and you can get all the help in buying a property that you need.
Anyway, look for good referrals. As friends or family who they used ... All about 3rd party validation. Hard otherwise to give you criteria other than experience and licensed (insured)
We tend to think ASHI certified inspectors are very good and thorough.
We can email you a list of inspectors that a lot of our buyer clients have used in the past: firstname.lastname@example.org... more

Ray, I am so sorry to hear that this is happening to you. First of all, do you want to give up the house? You can speak with a bankruptcy Attorney who can help you stop the auction by filing for bankruptcy. You can then buy yourself time to get current with the lender, modify your mortgage, or include some of the debt to get back on schedule. If you do not want to keep trying to afford the home because it is too expensive, then you are in a tough situation. Normally the person purchasing the home is buyin it to live in or flip so renting is not an option. There is a small chance that that would even be an option. I would work to make alternate plans so your not left getting kicked out of the home without another place to go. I wish you all the best. Again I'm very sorry for you.... more
