Asked by Tania, North Carolina • Mon Oct 12, 2009
I signed an offer to purchase and it was excepted by the seller. I had a home inspection done and the only thing that came up was that the smoke detectors were not wired. It was noted on the report. I received an email on Saturday from my buyers agent stating that the seller refused to fix them. He said in the email that I could cancel the contract. So I found another house more suited for myself. I emailed him back within the hour, telling him to cancel the contract and to show me this other house. My agent called me several hours later and said that I would probably lose my earnest money and possibly be sued. It sounds to me like he isn't telling me something, because I don't see why this is happening. Can I not get out of this without legal representation?
