I advise you to call your attorney. If you already have an attorney in line that will be closing you on you new purchase. Call the attorney and ask for advise. The attorney will help guide you through making a the best decision, for you.
It is best to take care and answer the questions that are making you uneasy for the get go.
Best of Luck and Enjoy Your New Home!
If you need a refferal, let me know. I have a list available.
