Tony & LeAnn answered:
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

Brenda Feria answered:

A Short Sale is anything but short. The corporate wheel moves very slowly. Agents who are dealing with short sales are dealing with employees of the bank on the other end of the phone line who work 9-5 and have a lunch hour and breaks. There is no sense of urgency. If one piece of the package is missing when they pick it up to review, it is placed at the bottom of the stack and the clock begins ticking again.

The big challenge is if there is a second mortgage on the property as well. Especially if the second is with another bank or lender. Sometimes they refuse to cooperate and that can put on the brakes rather abruptly.

I definitely think that Frank has given you the best advice which is have a backup plan.

Good luck,
