The reason you have to do this is to you have to weigh the costs of the attorney with you potential benefit. Itâ€™s possible you could force the seller to sell to you and not allow them to sell to the cash buyer, but it may be expensive to do this. This doesnâ€™t even consider the time and emotional costs involved. It may be worth the cost of an initial meeting with a qualified real estate attorney to figure out what is really involved. You could also consider just letting the deal go and then recover your cash expenses from small claimâ€™s court.
Sorry this isnâ€™t a â€œdo thisâ€ or a â€œthey canâ€™t do thatâ€ answer. Hopefully it helps you decide what to do next.
Good luck with that and I hope you will close next Friday.
