time to contact a tenant/landlord attorney or your county/city authorities. most legal aid offices (you'll need to google what's available in your area) offer tenant services for free if you can't afford an attorney. ... more

What is PERMITTED is dictated by the bank.
Some banks (Nationstar) say all agents must be non associated, not even in the same office.
Then when they get a buyer and the price is agreed to,,,Nationstar decides, "We'll have a auction to see if we can pump the price up!" Now that should not be legal when a purchase contract is in place...but there you have it
The moral to the story is, there is no GOOD FAITH PARTNER on the other side (bank) of a short sale transaction. Why you would think those assisting the buyer or owner to be outside what is legal is a thing of curiosity.
If you want to know if it is LEGAL, you will need to pay an attorney for such information.
Is it permissible. You bet.
It is the bank/investor who dictates the rules or who chooses to ignore the rules or makes them up as it pleases them. The real estate professionals involved are on task to be sufficiently agile to stay ahead of the games.
Tell us, what is your interest in the sale of this property?

This is really a question for the lender. Often a lender will insist that all documents display the same name. Mentioning Equator indicates this may be a short sale and those lenders typically do not allow changes to the contract without starting the entire approval process over again. ... more

Well, quite a story with many nuances. In making offers it is really a guessing came as to what to offer and whom to trust. Your accusations are difficult to substantiate but "sometimes" reasonable to assume. I would start by asking the Realtor in question what you want to know. Perhaps there is an explanation you had not considered.

It is unfortunate that the public would feel that way about a Realtor. Sorry for your trouble

I would need more information to give you a good answer. I would need to know the MLS number so I could look into the matter. If you think you suffered damages because the agent acted improperly, you could file a complaint with the Real Estate board and they will check it out. You my also want to contact an attorney. Short Sales can be very complicated and it is always a good practice to get an attorney involved as soon as possible. ... more

Linda Dillon answered:
It is the same old story!! Get it in writing. Unfortunately, the seller's agent is required to get them the best price for their property. Your agent is responsible for getting you the best price. If the acceptance is not in writing and the seller's agent did not tell you the seller had accepted your offer there is very little you can do. If your agent feels something underhanded was done he/she can certainly lodge a complaint with MLS and also the licensing board. However, in this case it dos not sound like anything unethical was done.

Joanne- The title search is completed by your lenders attorney's office not the seller. Typically they have a title examiner at the Registry of Deeds and can complete a title search in days not weeks. I would have your attorney find out what the reason for delays is. This doesn't sound right. It must be something other than the title search maybe underwriting. ... more

Dear Joanne,

This happened to a client of mine and after 4 months my buyer walked. However, the bank/seller had to relist and to an additional loss of $15,000. on top of a several hundred thousand dollars with list agent.

Another deal started to fall apart when we realized the 1930 subdivision plans didn't match the deed and my client didn't technically own the land his house was on (which he purchased in 2000 from the orginal buyer from 1930.) We were able to locate a son of the past owner , straighten out the typo for the lot next doorand still pass title to the new buyers on time.

My point: If you the buyer are still interested and the selling bank is still wanting to sell to you. Then you still have a deal. Its known as a meeting of the minds in legal circles. Just keep your documents up-to-date and find a solution to the problem.

Un-Clear title could be taxes, past mechanic liens, unknown beneficiaries, missing registry documents. A good Attorney can usually get the job done with a title company and some phone calls.

Feel free to call us anytime for Moore information
