If there is no HOA, you need to contact a real estate attorney and have him/her review the situation. Nobody online can advise you because we don't have access to your purchase contract and there may be more details that we don't know about. ... more

I have not seen an NVR contract in years, howver, they used to be quite onerous if you chose another lender besides the NVR mortgage group. I worked with many folks after they signed the contract, and the loss of discounts and upgrades, closing costs, etc, made switching very problematic.
