It depends on the terms of your specific purchase agreement. You should ask your Realtor.
Generally, depending on the specific purchase agreement, sellers are usually not obligated to make repairs or renegotiate price. Buyers with open inspection contingencies may have a right to cancel. Generally, the buyer has broad inspection contingency rights, and they may be entitled to the return of the deposit when those rights are exercised in good faith. But ultimately if there is a dispute, a judge or arbitrator may decide the issue, and no one can ever guarantee how any particular case will be decided.
I am a real estate broker qualified to advise you on California real estate matters, not the law. If you desire legal advice, consult with an attorney.
Hope this helps!

Since March of this year 14 homes sold between $400k-$550k in the Lompoc area in an average 68 days at 98.5% of the list price. There are currently only 6 homes (including 2 brand new homes) in that price range for sale right now. This is a great time to sell while getting the price you need. Not much competition & plenty of buyers looking to buy. Price right you could get multiple offers in a very short time. ... more

Hi there - Inspections are always the most conservative piece about a home purchase. Have you owned a home before? I would suggest reviewing this with your realtor to determine what is a necessity to have resolved before closing, and what is standard obsolescence for the structure. ... more

Hopefully it has changed, I have seen those go 90 days only to have the HAFA fall through.

If your income is W2 you should be fine. If it is 1099 or self employed income, you have a problem.

There are three things for certain in life: death, taxes, and mistakes......

We learned a long time ago to copy everything, seek comfirmations for sent material, and then follow up to be sure everything is in place as it should be. Sometimes assuming things didn't happen as they were intended can prevent an evolving problem.

Another good reason for us to surround ourselves with the best people we can find...... and even they mistakes will happen.

Good luck,

Hi Ronnie,

It's not clear whether you are renting right now or the home is owned by you/him.

I believe consulting your attorney/landlord at this point is wise. However, as a first step and in order for you to do some background research, please review the following document to try and find a match for your specific situation so you have a better idea of what your options are:
This is a very useful document. Considering the current volatile environment, I would suggest you print those sections applicable to your situation and going somewhere where you do not feel threatened to read them.

Best, Steve
