Escrow disputes have their process and your agent should be able to explain (I hope you were being represented by a Buyer's agent otherwise refer to contract). The title company cannot release escrow unless release and cancellation is signed by all parties. If escrow cannot be mediated between the brokerage companies you will need to hire an attorney. ... more

Not sure how you got this close to closing date and just realizing this. If all your dates and deadlines have passed you might have a difficult time but the best advice is to contact a real estate attorney. ... more

Good Morning Arjun,

Is your purchase in the State of Florida?

Did you receive the Condo Documents and did you read them?

Did you visit the property with your Realtor? Was inspection done?

Did the appraisal reveal the square footage and that's when you found out about the difference in square footage?

These are all questions that need an answer prior to closing, you are paying per square foot, so are you paying for non existing sq. ft.?

Your Realtor if not his/her BROKER should be able to help you. I would contact the BROKER to your REALTOR.. I hope this helps.

No, not at all. The only ones that take that long are short sales. A conventional loan is normally 30 days and FHA or VA loan 45 days. A USDA loan may take 60 days.

Has the broker misled or are they just not following up on messages or emails. Not returning phone calls or emails is not a reason to file a complaint. Sounds like sour grapes.....

I reiterate the previous answers in that we haven't heard anything about an extension. Your best bet is to buy right now and go for a regular sale (seller to buyer). A short sale is out of the question and foreclosures can also be a lengthy process, since the purchase contract the banks use have basically no deadlines on responding to an offer or a closing date. If you have the money for down payment, go for it. I don't now if you're aware that buyers can ask sellers to help with closing costs, usually about 3% of sale price. This went away during the "flush" years, but it's back again in a big way. Even if it's not the full 3% you can at least get some money towards closing. Good hunting!
