Need help actually, don't know where else to post. HEre in CA, I am a buyer of short sale house. Listing agent insists that the sellers get a check from me for $5,000. At first, it was an "incentive check" so seller would sign papers/accept bid. Then on actually paperwork it says under Terms and Conditions buyer agrees to pay seller $5,000 for modifications to the home (cheap ramps for people in wheelchairs) etc. Was there long before I put a bid on it. Shouldn't be paying for anything, so called incentive or their wording it as for modifications to the house. Help!
