You will need that money to close and yes, you can be sued. What do you mean the money is not available to you anymore? I would advise contacting a lawyer but then you don't have money for a lawyer either, correct?
Bottom line - you signed a contract. You're expected to honor the contract. If you don't, the other party has a right to sue you. Buyers can cancel a contract under the following conditions: a home inspection, if a lender refuses to finance your loan, or an appraisal. If you passed the deadline for the home inspection and appraisal, you can't go back. However, if the lender is financing your loan, how is it you don't have the money to close?

I had the same exact issues with mine! It was a disaster on so many levels dealing with local a federal bureaucratic red tape!
Too many levels of mismanagement!
HUD thinks they're a classified dept....They exist but don't exist....Bad enough you have to deal with goverment regulated banks to begin with so Good luck getting a straight answer or any info from HUD or they're BS contractors...They have gone over board with they're policies/guidelines & how to follow the policies/guidelines! Never again! ... more

well if it's a cash only home then that would probably indicate the home is not suitable to be financed in it's present condition

Our home is estimated on all other websites for over $500,000 but Trulia has us estimated at $239,000. HUGE discrepancy!!! WHY???

201 Equestrian Drive, Forsyth, GA 31029

Trulia from what I can find out is headquartered in China. The other websites are within the United States of America.

We had both tax assessor and appraiser and they both were over $500,000 with the appraiser at $560,000. Trulia, you need to repair your software! Zillow is much closer of an estimator.

Lenders and appraisers do not even look at internet valuations, so they say. You can log into these websites and try to fix their errors, but the computers does not change or update their valuation of property. Good luck getting anything changed on this website!!!!

Casey Stewart answered:
If you haven't heard back from your credit union, it's not necessarily a bad sign -- possibly bad service. I'd recommend talking to a few lenders anyhow to see what programs they offer. Try a major national bank and one or two local banks -- if you go through this process with a few lenders within the same 30-45 day period, it shows up as just one inquiry on your credit report.

Good luck with your home search!
