Mahalo for your responses:

Bruce - I did review the contract, and see where I misunderstood the wording of 'finding a lender/approval' to mean the pre-approval letter I already had, based on all the financials etc. submitted and approved. Since closing was set ~45 days later, it never occurred to me that the contingency on approval did not mean final underwriting, as there was nothing else for me to act upon within that eighteen day period. I could not afford, nor did I think it necessary, to hire an attorney to review the contract, and there was NEVER a mention of that deadline before, during, or after the extensions we filed from neither my Realtor nor my lender.

Lorna - I had found the info you presented in my own research, and asked my Realtor to request the funds, hoping at the very least we might negotiate. His request was to the seller's agent, who responded wryly that I did not exercise my right to withdrawal when I could have, and that her client works for an attorney and has easy, cheap access to resources to sue. I replied to the escrow agent myself, requesting the funds. My Realtor advised me to release funds before the seven day limit to avoid being sued. Supposedly the Realtor-referred lender and Realtor were in communication regularly, but I often felt out of the loop and addressed it in several phone calls and emails to all parties. There was a continuous line of new document requests, each one after submitting 'the last item,' and none the result of new information, as nothing had changed since before the pre-approval.

Depending on what neighborhood Aqua Water Supply provides the majority of water service to Bastrop and Cedar Creek and some have wells. Properties outside of the Aqua Water Service in most cases have their own wells.

Unfortunately the property you were inquiring about did not come through.

For the quickest and best answer I recommend call Aqua Water Supply in Bastrop at 512-303-3943

Hi, Snikrep

Great responses to your question. I would just like to clarify a couple of things: Whether with or without a formal contract, whether W2 or 1099/self employed, regardless of how long or short you've been with your current employer, you always need to show a 2 work history via W2s and/or Federally tax returns. Only exception is if your fresh out of college and been employed for less than 2 years as a result. In that case, however, so long as you're employed in the line of work you went to school for, your time in school counts towards your work history. ... more
