I hope you are using a REALTOR to assist you through the process, you could certainly have all of your questions answered by your agent.

I want to believe that you are getting professional help in your purchasing efforts, because Trulia Voices ain't the place to obtain the particular help that you obviously need.

Nevertheless, I shall try.

If you make an offer, you need to have "Immediately available funds" in the amount of the offer, unless you stipulate otherwise. Any stipulated contingency will have a time limit. Your offer must have some basic criteria, including but not limited to a price, a closing date with a named Georgia attorney. Valid earnest money probably accompanies your offer, if your Seller knows what they are doing.

All of this real estate purchasing stuff is so easy when you are working with a professional, fiduciary Buyer's Agent in an Exclusive Buyer Agency agreement.

Otherwise, I have a feeling that your particular problem in this case is insurmountable. Start over.

Remember, the habit of "win / win or no deal" is not only one of the 7 habits of highly effective people, but it is also "part of the great primieval contract of eternal society."

Your question, spelling and punctuation are a bit odd, almost as if this is a joke to see how many agents respond to just anything.....I'm online :-}

If you are asking a question regarding Contract Law the answer is that a real estate transaction has to be in writing. Signatures of Both the Buyer and Seller effectuate an offer and an acceptance of the terms of that offer by both parties.

Sooooo if human error (those do exist) caused the buyer to leave the closing and missed one of the 1400 ka zillion forms that had to be signed, Go Back and Sign It.

If the buyer closed a loan the buyer also signed a piece of paper saying that he would cooperate should issues arise AFTER closing.

***IF you are saying that the buyer agreed to one thing and all of a sudden the seller has changed the terms of the agreement THEN you are protected by the FACT that you can Walk Away from the DRAMA. You don't have to sign anything you don't agree with.

No one is going to force the buyer to drive to the attorney's office, produce a photo id and sign a mortgage promissory note. That would be opting OUT of THINKING.
