If you are trying to do this from LA, then who is your agent(s) in Georgia?
I don't understand your reasons for not closing, but somebody here in Georgia should be your fiduciary on this.
Not us Trulia Voices.
Government does not move very efficiently - most government is broken right now, so find some peace, bear with "the system" and rely upon your talented fiduciaries in Georgia for salient advice and duly diligent troubleshooting...
We promise less hassle...
I hope that you get a good result in the end, but hope is not a strategy.
Just release yourself from attachment to the outcome - don't y'all have that figured out in California yet?
PS. FNMA is so backward and slow in their administration of a contract that I no longer bid on these homes myself and will strongly encourage my clients to not consider a FNMA owned home for their purchase. I just don't need the aggravation.
