Best of luck with the sale of your home.
Now that you are in this present condition and have not resolved any matters in regards to the home. It seems you may need to do research on the property at the Dallas County Appraisal Office and see who is listed as the owner of the house.
Title Company generally don't let you hang this long, had a licensed realtor was hired. You may want to contact the Title Company and find out what is going on with the house.
Unless there are issues on the house such as lien on the property or property may be in a probate court and there may be issues on the house and it will not sell. Or it can be anything that would not allow the house to obtain a clear title. A title search may help, but it would cost money to obtain it from the title company. A Quit claim deed may be issued by an attorney in an attempt to cure the cloud in the property, provided that is the delay. Consult an attorney.
Title Policy is the instrument that permits ownership of the home and generally, an Real Estate attorney may be consulted to seek your information further. Attorney may assist in clearing the cloud in the title.
Unless you have been scammed and have been defrauded by FSBO. Then consult a real estate attorney on your legal matter. Even short sale may take a long time at the title company but this is now year 2014. I have many unanswered questions on this matter. I hope you resolved your matter. Good luck.
T.....do yourselrf a favor, and hire a realtor so that you don't waste time in the future with unqualified buyers.
There are some people who can handle their own sales.......I truly don't think you are one of them, and I don't mean to be disrespectful when I say that.
. You need help with this. It's a major financial decision and a professional's guidance can make all the difference in the world.

Sorry, it does not sound good for you.
Let me know if I can help you.
If you used a TREC contract too, your contract is likely not valid either.
You need to contact your board certified real estate attorny.
Likely you will need to terminate the contract and refund her earnest money,
but you should do so on the advice of your attorney.
Good luck with the sale of your home - you really should hire a Realtor and I cannot think of two more qualified realtors to help you then Allen or I.
Situations like this, is where you should really think about hiring a Realtor so you are fully represented in the sale of your home.

I have printed out and fill up the following form for termination of contract. Do i need any other papers to terminated the contract. ?
You mention that you are selling without professional representation.
I suggest you hire a real estate attorney to help you .
You should know that 85% of sellers eventually hire professional representation- so if you really need to sell, you might want to interview a Realtor or two in case you need them.
You are wasting precious marketing time with this buyer. There are numerous red flags already. She has not done what she has promised and there is no guarantee that she will. In the meantime, you have taken your home off the market while she "maybe" gets her credit fixed or comes up with more down payment. (Probably won't happen if she can't come up with the earnest money). Terminate this contract and move on. If I may ask, why haven't you used a Realtor? We can save you all of these problems and more by using our expertise. If paying the commission is an issue, please remember there are many Realtors that don't charge 3% or more for their side of the transaction. There are lots of alternatives.
