Back taxes need to be paid for title to be conveyed to the new buyer. Liens and clouded title can normally be resolved and are almost always negotiated. A licensed local Agent can assist you and help you to present a strong offer when there is a clouded title.

Please feel free to contact me should you have any further questions or if you are looking for an agent with experience, honesty, and exceptional negotiation skills.

As long as you have a middle credit score of 580 or higher you can purchase with 3.5% down. You sound like a good candidate to purchase a home. You should get an agent though to help you purchase a home that are bank owned. Right now there is a shortage but the market should get more properties within the next couple months. If you contact me I can answer any questiosn you have and help you get pre-approved. The seller pays the agent and you really need someone pn your side. there are many great agetns on this site and if you need a referrla I have some great AAgents I work with. I strictly do the mortgage side.

Hi Van,

Not knowing what you agreed to with those "all sorts of papers" you signed, makes it impossible for anyone not familiar with the details to say what was right or wrong.

In my own experiences with the loan officers I've worked with, buyers will pay for the appraisals, but loans are typically approved before an appraisal, and fees usually less than what you've quoted here. It can be possible that a buyer's circumstances could arise before closing that could prevent a loan from being funded. Taking out a car loan or other credit purchases, or banking account discrepancies would be some examples. It's the same as a property not appraising for loan value, and that will cancel a deal and the buyer still responsible to pay appraisal fees. Those are often contingencies found in your contracts.

Again, that doesn't mean this is what applies in your specific situation. It only shows a good reason why you should always have a clear understanding before signing any agreements / contracts.

If you want to file a complaint, you would do so though the Nevada Business and Industry

7220 Bermuda Rd., Suite A., Las Vegas, NV 89119
Phone (702) 486-0780 Fax (702) 486-0785

They have an online consumer complaint form. You can type in your information, but it must be printed and mailed as it won't save as a digital document, or automatically file electronically.

Hope that helps, and good luck.

Many factors go into the decision, and some depend on the bank holding the property. Being an owner occupant for example will hold more weight than an investor in some cases, but not all. Cash does make a difference too. When there are multiple offers, it's not uncommon for the bank to choose the cash offer even if it's slightly less than the offer contingent on financing. ... more
