sounds fishy. If there were no property taxes assessed then they can't just charge you for them.

First off, verify through your county/city that indeed no taxes or special assessments have been issued. Also, see if you can obtain a copy of the exempt status.

Then call up customer service with the new lender and speak to the escrow department and let them know. They should be able to adjust things on their end. If a customer service rep can't correct things, then ask for their manager.

Hope this helps and its an easy fix!

I don't understand your question, but I can tell you if you want out of a contract, you need more help than we can offer here. Have the contract and your concerns reviewed by an attorney and see what options you have. Without reading your actual contract and knowing the state laws regarding Real Estate, no one can give you a reliable answer. ... more

Your buyers agent would provide you penalty(s) you would be charged based on executed sales agreement. No one can render an opinion unless entire document is reviewed.

Good question...for your attorney. Your question leaves a bit to be desired. I see that you are listed as a home buyer. If you have an agent he or she should be able to advise you in this matter. You should consult with your agent and your attorney before proceeding.
There are too many ifs, ands, or buts to give you sound advice in this forum.
Article 13 of the REALTOR code of ethics states:
REALTORS® shall not engage in activities that constitute the unauthorized practice of law and shall recommend that legal counsel be obtained when the interest of any party to the transaction requires it.
Good luck.

The advice you are being given to contact an attorney is correct.
