Yes. Essentially, they've broken the contract. It's now voidable (meaning you have the power to void the contract if you choose). Talk to your realtor and to title, but you should be safe. At least that's how it works in Texas. ... more

Under $500,000 in Needham will really be tough. There are none currently.
Needham is a highly desirable town and if rightly priced, the house mostly sells within a month.

I have been in such situation. The attorney can hold portion of settlement amount to seller until the agreed repairs are done. Or if buyer is agreed (which in most cases seller will love too), seller will pay estimated amount to the buyer to get the repairs done. ... more

This is not uncommon. It shouldn't matter as long as you compare the fee with similar condo's around and if condo fund is in good health.
Personally, unless I really love the place I will not prefer to have utilities included in the condo fee. People usually misuse the energy and water .. and sometime the responsible owner's have to pay the price. ... more

It was an interesting thread to read. Negotiation is an art and communication with your client is a responsibility. Hope you finally got the house you really wanted.

If the work to be done was specified in the P&S and there is language in there that allows you to back out based on a walk through / re-inspection then you should be ok. You definitely want to have a lawyer look at the paperwork. Here in Needham, Scott Taylor at Kriss Law is excellent. Good luck! ... more

Did the attorney's come to an agreement prior to close? A hold back? Something in writing?
If none of the above your leverage/rights might be limited but certainly worth a call to your attorney for some guidance.


Good luck!

Heath Coker answered:
Asivaraman,

Ask your attorney if your contingencies protect you.
The words/terms of the contingency may have included some interest rate clauses.
You may also need to apply to another lender.

Number one rule in Real Estate: location, location, location
So that pretty much answers your question.

Just make sure you pay fair market value for the property. That can be assessed by pulling similar properties that have sold in the surrounding streets. You may find in certain towns (with high demand) it doesn't have too much of an effect.

The 2012 residential property rate is $10.95 per $1,000 of assessed value

In that price range you are talking anywhere from $9,000-10,000
