1. In their website, it shows â€œExpiredâ€ first and then changed to â€œWithdrawn/Cancelâ€. What does it mean?
A: It probably means that during the long period of time it was pending, the listing agent never bothered to extend the listing date on the MLS. Therefore it expired. They probably renewed the listing after they received a notification it had expired, then, at some point later, canceled the listing.
2. Does the seller agent have the right to Withdrawn/Cancel the short sale?
A: It depends on why they cancelled â€“ your agent needs to find out what happened.
3. Does the seller agent have the responsibility to tell me the reasons of Withdrawn/Cancel?
A: Absolutely. They need to issue a cancellation of contract and you need to sign it â€“ the cancellation should state the reason it was cancelled.
4. Does the seller agent have the right to sell to other buyer or keep it for listing again?
A: Depends on your contract. This is a question for your Realtor who should be able to tell you. If the contract was cancelled, it was more than likely because the seller (1) got a loan modification, (2) got foreclosed on or (3) worked out a deal with the lender to repay all delinquent monies.
5. Does the seller agent have the responsibility to tell me what the lenderâ€™s response (Accepted my offer or not)?
A: By now Iâ€™m wondering if you had your own agent â€“ they should be answering all these questions â€“ not the sellerâ€™s agent.
6. Does my contract still have legal effect/legally binding?
A: Depends on why it was cancelled. Depends on how your offer was written. Depends on a LOT of things â€“ your agent needs to answer this question based on the contract you had.
7. Can I still have the right to buy the house or request to resubmit if they didnâ€™t submit my offer to the lender?
A: Depends on why it was cancelled.
8. Who should I contact if seller agent doesnâ€™t response?
A: YOUR agent â€“ where is your agent?
9. What should I do if I still want to buy the property?
A: Ask YOUR agent. Or their broker. Too much missing information here for us to make an informed decision or provide accurate advice.
