Get an agent. You need to have someone representing you. If the owner says he won't deal with your realtor, decide if you are willing to pay for him/her yourself.

Have no fear! It isn't hard to sell a home with a pool, especially when it's 3,000 degrees outside in the summer! Just keep it maintained so there aren't any repair issues.

You typify a person "getting on with it" despite your circumstances. Good for you! On the other hand, your fiance's broken lease is the gift that will keep on giving until he goes back and makes amends by settling the debt or paying the judgement. You cannot avoid this without "dooming" yourselves to poor living conditions for years into the future.

I'll assume your question is about proving the bedbugs or roaches were in the apartment when you moved in. If so, make sure you get a "Move-In Inspection" checklist to make note of the bugs and return it to the landlord in the time required. Of course you will keep a copy for yourself, and as an added measure take photos with your phone and email them to yourself to "date stamp" the problem.

Again, your fiance' will have to go back to move forward.

Best of luck!!

Please check out Tenkiv solar energy company. They use a more cutting edge technology, making their system work more efficiently.
I will be getting my system installed in October (they are backed up). I have to use a water softener and filter for our St. Louis Park, MN, awful water, but after October I will have distilled water from my Tenkiv system. I am told this system will pay for itself in saved heating costs. Very exciting. Don't have an "x" amount yet, but I think this is a good gamble. ... more

Karen Peyton answered:
This is a complicated question because it depends on whether or not the Seller has taken "action" in their refusal to sell. Without "action" and 10 days left before close of escrow, no breach of contract has occurred (according to what you have written) and they can easily comply with the terms and conditions of the contract to avoid a breach.

Of course your agent is the best person to comment on the events of your transaction and what your recourse as the Buyer may be. Contact them for the exact answer to your question as it relates to your unique and individual circumstance.

Good luck!
