In Aug I found a HUD home I wanted to purchase. I put in an offer but I lost to another bidder. That fell through(?) and the house went back on the market in Oct 08. I raised my bid and it was accepted. Met w/ the realtor & signed the purchase agreement, put my earnest $ down, paid the agent to handle the water turn on & I should then get my home inspection.
Turns out that since the property has been vacant for over 12 mos, the city must inspect b4 I can turn on the electric, which needs to be on before gas so the furnace can be turned on so the water will come on. City finds electric problem and wouldn't clear the property. Contractor goes (on the sly) and gets electric on but now there's a gas leak and gas can't be turned on. I'm seeing a pattern.
I'm not allowed to make any repairs to the property but utils need on b4 inspection! My broker told me to just have a contractor go over there and best guess what the repairs are for a 203k loan but this seems wrong to me.
