I have written before about my nightmare with a short sale. Unfortunately we used the listing agent's husbad to write the offer and subsequently found out he is the owner. He had promised to take care of us and said the house belongs to his brother and since it is short sale it is fine for him to represent us. He made us open Escrow 55 days ago, encashed out check and also we have spent on Inspection and Appraisal. He has still nto received the letter of approval from countrywide. Yesterday the Escrow officer called (after 50 days in Escrow) and said that the bank is refusing to pay delinquent HOA, Sellers closing costs of about 2700 and Home Warranty of $500. There could be more so we asked to cancel Escrow. When asked why we are not made to sign a short sale addendum (SSA) the agent says SSA is new and came out just 2 months ago. He is refusing to reimburse our costs of Inspection, Appraisal and Escrow penalty. Do we have a right to claim these as he mis-represented us?
