I applaud the inspector for trying to find a solution. It's possible that in order to effectively involve his insurance, you may have to "sue" him... I'm not sure.

Since you were already aware of a $7-$8,000 expense... it has just increased by $7,500-$12,500... right? That's what I would be looking for.

Good luck.

(I don't work for Trulia) I have noted that HOA fees are included in the Trulia listings if they were in the original data source. The problem may be that most web portals don't have a way to filter the listings based on HOA fees.
If you choose to work with a local Realtor, your Realtor can customize your property search in hundreds of different ways to suit your needs and send you updates as soon as property matching your specific criteria are listed or updated.
We specialize in the San Gabriel Valley, but assist buyers in other areas as well.
Thanks!

You might consider working with a local Realtor as your exclusive buyer representative. A good agent knows how to get your offer presented to the seller even if the listing agent says they are not accepting offers. ... more

Unless you find a couple you are willing to pay up front, they are working for free. If you buy with someone else, they get zero for the time and work they invested in you.

Talk to you agent about next steps such as "Notice to Seller to Perform". If the seller's agent isn't being helpful have your agent talk to the seller's agent broker about the matter.

If you have one, a/your lawyer should be able to draft you one up. He'll have questions, but don't ask him to help you fill it out because then it could get pricey. I'd only offer my lawyer $50, and then he's probably counter $80. ... more

Robert Spinosa answered:
This scenario (5% down with a $1.2MM purchase price) is something we can finance and your profile would appear to fit from all aspects. The 95% jumbo requires a 720 FICO score and 9 months of asset reserves. We can use retirement accounts to meet the reserve requirement (and they do not need to be liquidated). There is no PMI on this program, though as other comments have suggested, the "risk factor" for this loan is priced into the rate itself (this works very much like LPMI or "lender paid mortgage insurance"). The loan options are 30-year fixed or 5/1 ARM as well as a 40-year fixed with interest-only payments for 10 years.
There are no prepayment penalties.

If you have questions or require additional detail, don't hesitate to get in touch. Thank you.
