Susie Kay answered:
That's totally up to you. If you don't feel comfortable then you can terminate your contract to purchase right away. If you still like the home, you can negotiate for repairs from the seller. If the seller refuses, then you terminate the contract.

I hope this makes sense!

I would suggest that you pick up the phone and call a local realtor to discuss about this. Ask also for past performance in the area that you are interested.

Good luck!

You definitely can and should. Honestly they should be have informed you of the timeline and kept you updated along the way. Most of my lenders I work with take about 3-5 business day to issue an approval on an FHA purchase. You should have something shortly I would think. Many lenders are at full capacity these days with rates at historic lows.

Best of luck to you.

Tara L. Dieringer answered:
It sounds like your credit card provider has sent your account to a collection agency...and that is probably why you have not received anymore debt collections or past due payment reminders. Without seeing your credit report, it is hard for me (or anyone) to give you sound advice as to what your next step should be.

In general, a recent collection will impact your credit score approximately 25-50 points, but after approximately 6 months, your score will start to recover. It is better to have a "Paid" collection on your credit report rather than an "Outstanding" collection, but there are a few things you should be aware of regarding credit scoring.

Let's have a collection account that is 2 years old...since the collection shows a "Date of Last Activity" of 2 years ago, this collection generally does not impact your FICO score anymore (or if it does, it is minimal).

Now let's have spoken to the collection agency and have agreed to a repayment plan for that collection account...once this happens, your 2-year old collection will now report as a new recent collection, because your "Date of Last Activity" has just changed from 2 years ago to today. Thus impacting your FICO score as a recent collection. In this scenario, your score will actually decrease until the collection account is paid in full AND a 30-day cycle has lapsed since the account was paid. At that point, your score will increase.

There are numerous factors involved in credit-scoring. Way too many to type here. I am more than happy to discuss any other credit-related or mortgage-related questions you may have in greater detail with you. Feel free to contact me at 512-584-6109.

I am very sorry to hear about your experience. Your situation is the exact same reason in 2005 a lease option law (House Bill 1823) was passed in Texas. This law is there to protect you in lease option contracts. Contact the Texas RioGrane Legal Aid for help if you cannot afford an attorney. TRLA is a nonprofit organization that provides free legal services to the residents of Southwest Texas who are unable to afford the fees of attorneys in private practice. Additionally, You can also contact a HUD housing counselor for assistance.
These services are available to you for free. Best wishes to you and remember next time to consult an attorney before putting money down or signing a lease option contract. As the od adage says, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
