George Raymondo answered:
If I, as a seller, am carrying the mortgage, do I have the right to specify the amount of penalty for late payment in the state of Georgia?
I would think a 5% late fee would be acceptable. Anything else might seem excessive. But again you're holding the paper you can make the rules.

Home Selling Consultant answered:
do sellers have any rights if a buyer backs out 2 hours prior to signing? we had a sales agreement and 2 extentions because of paper work on his end.
Did you mean closing?

If so, read the paragraph in the contract about default.

If it's unclear, ask your real estate agent or real estate attorney to explain.
