If the door lock was a dead bolt lock on the main entry door, the landlord would usually be responsible.

Well probably not, but you may have another way to do it. California law allows you to withdraw anytime you find out any previously undisclosed information. So if they even hand you a title policy you can use it to back out. So you really want to find another way out.

Of course, all of this really sucks though. Why should you have to sneak around because the lender did not fund your loan? Give me a call let's see if I can fund it for you. I close very quickly.

It is too bad these lenders are not held accountable for this type thing.

You should contact me as soon as you can. My phone number is 949-297-1207.

The house is apparently pending the close of escrow or under an option period. Agents usually will not show houses under contract. Until it closes though , you can still submit an offer as a backup. Many times the house doesn't close because of some glitch and comes back on the market, then they will consider your offer. ... more
