Help the community by answering this question:


Once the purchase transaction has been completed, you own the home. On a refinance, a borrower has 3 days to change his/her mind and cancel the transaction. I assume the 30 days you are referring to is that you agreed to let the seller stay there for 30 days post settlement (it is called a rent back). On a sale, there is no 3 day waiting period. I suggest you contact the title company / attorneys office that completed this sale for their guidance.

Gather all of your paperwork from the sale, and be able to clearly document all that has happened since the settlement in the house. The contact a Real Estate Attorney.
