So sorry to hear that. Those greedy homeowners. Welcome to our world!
Since you are writing under "Home Buying in Carmichael" we are all assuming you are purchasing in California where we would have the ability, as real estate licencess, to advise you.
Just as some of the agents below have stated, check your contract with a real estate attorney. I highly recommend:
Steve Beede, Founder and Managing Partner
BPE Law Group, Inc.
Main: 11140 Fair Oaks Blvd., Suite 300, Fair Oaks, CA 95628
Satellite: 9245 Laguna Springs Dr., Suite 200, Elk Grove, CA 95758 (Appointment Only)
For a $200 flat, less than the price of a home inspection (in some cases), you can ensure you are protected throughout the remainder of the transaction. Act quickly, as one of the agents stated below, timeframes are crucial. Don't take them lightly. If you miss a contractual deadline, you are out of contract and then the seller can move to cancel your deal.
Hope that helps.
