One absolutely hard and fast rule I have about the real estate business is:
"If it's not in writing, it's not real estate..."
I never, ever, ever rely on the verbal assurances of ANYTHING anyone tells me when I am involved in a real estate transaction.
That includes home buyers, home owners, real estate agents, inspectors, contractors, escrow officers or lenders.
If it's not in writing, the information cannot be verified or relied upon.
Also, per California Civil Code Section 1624, ninety nine percent of issues involved around a real estate contract has to be in writing to be enforceable.
My advice is, if someone tells you something related to your transaction, ask to see exactly where that verbal communication is backed up by something in writing.
So, to answer your question, if I were working with you, and you don't have written proof that your loan is solid, and if you still have time remaining to complete your loan contingency, I would tell you to definitely not remove it.
Best of luck to you.
Please let us know how your real estate transaction works out.
