Since rent to own can be risky and one could stand to lose a bit of money, perhaps it's time to consult with an attorney who specializes in real estate and have all related paperwork reviewed and go from there; most professionals offer a free consultation. ... more

I never dangle the prospect of being approved for a home loan by paying off old collections or charge offs unless it a part of overall strategy of raising someone's scores. The AUS (automated underwriting system) will tell us if it's necessary that you payoff those debts. Since most states have their own statute of limitations (3-4 years), it is not necessary to payoff old collections and especially charge offs if they are past the time frame of a debt being collectable. You need to talk with another lender. We are approved in NC, let me know if you need assistance. ... more

That is the whole point. We are stuck and have no recourse. Why aren't buyers protected from this kind of thing? We didn't learn of the cracked flue until we just had the chimney cleaned, three months after the sale. There is no way for us to verify the condition of a chimney flue prior to close?? This has nothing to do with the home inspection. It was a separate contractor who was asked to check out the chimney flue. ... more
