Your listing agreement should spell this out. You should ask your listing agent and if you have a problem with them, discuss with the managing broker or a local attorney. Good luck working things out

You need to talk to your Realtor and/or your attorney. The contract should specify what happens when either party breaks a contract to buy.

I think you are confusing a home purchase agreement with signing an agreement to refinance a mortgage on a home which you already own. With a refinance, you do have a 3 day period after signing the agreement to revoke it. That is not the case with a purchase agreement. If you are thinking about trying to back out of your purchase agreement without a clause to allow you to back out, you will have issues. I suggest that you consult with an attorney who handles residential real estate matters.

Contact your Agent, if unsatisfied with the answer then contact the agents Broker, if that does not satisfy you either, then call your local Association of Realtors and ask for the number to an affiliate attorney. These attorneys will likely give you a first interview for free, that may be all you require.
