Magicaltalon, Home Buyer in 10039

What happens if my conditional loan approval expires before my closing date?

Asked by Magicaltalon, 10039 Thu Sep 24, 2009

And what if I don't want to renew it?

Take Ralph's advice and consult with your attorney to get a direct answer to your question. A lot depends on the terms of your contract and what has transpired up until this point. There may be other ways to get you out of your deal.

Additionally, as an alternative to seeking to retain the defaulting buyer's deposit- a Seller MAY be entitled to seek, as damages, recovery of the difference between the price established in the contract w/ the defaulting buyer and the amount ultimately received for the property.

All the best,

I would strongly urge that you speak with your attorney about this. If you default on your responsibilities to secure a loan in good faith and get denied because of your inaction, you may lose your down payment money. I don't know your situation so it's very difficult to give you a good answer on this. Good luck.
