Steve Quintana answered:
Determining the seller's authority to sell involves an investigation and a risk that most people handle with the purchase of title insurance. This transfers the risk of an unauthorized sale to the insurance company.

Another way to figure this out is to ask the seller to produce documents showing their authority to sell, which is not all that unreasonable, but which will simply duplicate what the title insurance company's work.

If you have a doubt based in fact, as opposed to being mere curious, ask your broker to document the seller's bona fides before you put your money down.

There really are not too many lenders who have this loan program available. If they do, it's a 80/10/10 loan, were you'll need a 10% down-payment and borrow 80% on one loan and the 10% on a second loan. Good luck.

Elaine Patterson answered:
Typically, no the seller will not pay your closing costs. As the other agents have said, they may though agree to a seller's concession, but the greatest risk is if their home does not appraise at the higher value. Most sellers and their attorneys will allow it, with a clause in the contract that states if the home does not appraise including the concession, the buyer must be able to pay for their closing costs and move forward w the transaction. This way it's a win win for all and the deal stays together. I have negotiated this many times.
