Asked by Jane Rayburn, New York, NY • Sun Nov 1, 2009
I'm a home buyer in New York state, and I've made a written offer that was verbally accepted by the seller. I went ahead with the inspection and met with my attorney, but 1 day later the seller received a higher offer from another buyer and verbally "un-accepted" my offer. Should I be asking for a signed document that can "lock in" a seller's acceptance of an offer? Or is nothing legally enforceable until the contract is signed?
