Sorry about that, Imrobertson. Lot reservation form usually doesn't mean a lot unless, at this point, that's all what builder is offering. Builder should have given you at least a courtesy notice about the upcoming contract so you can have an equal opportunity to participate in a bidding.

What is the name of the community? I believe you just got yourself a leverage. Give me a call, lets work on a strategy.

You have every right to purchase a home in your own know. Your joint tax returns could ruin the transaction if your spouse writes off expenses that could reduce your available income you want to use to repay the loan.

Your spouses income can not be considered in the transaction however if his expenses flow to a negative, his income could hurt your chances.

Dp answered:

That all depends on what situation you are building your credit. If it is due to an fatal illness FHA is generally verify understanding that a life event took place that was totally out of your control. If it is a divorce or bankruptcy you are going to have to wait till your credit scores reach at least 580 if its from a divorce. If the credit rebuild is coming from a bankruptcy situation you are going to have to wait the full two years.

I was just told by a lender I work with frequently that FHA is looking at a shortsale differently allowing you to apply (credit scores 580 or higher) 6 months after a shortsale on real estate transactions.

Find a solid Loan Officer in your area that is willing to work with you and has the knowlege of how you can improve your credit score even faster.

Best of luck

Scott Godzyk answered:
The key is who did you pay the deposit to. Was it the seller or their attorney? Why did the closing attorney not include this in your closing? You may need to check with them and see if there is a statute of limitations. The seller may have to prve you knew the check wasnt cashed and said nothing. Good luck working it out ... more

My NC Homes Team answered:
In most states the law is that an earnest money deposit must be deposited into the holding agents escrow account within 48 hours. However you're only making an offer today, and it may or may not be accepted. Typically your agent will simply send a copy of the check along with your offer to purchase to the listing agent. The actual EMD check won't be handed over until the contract is accepted and signed by the Seller. If your offer is accepted then it's become a contract and you should anticipate the check will be deposited promptly. Do not write a check if you don't have sufficient funds in your account to cover it. Do speak with your buyer broker (I hope you have one) and ask them any questions you might have, that's what they're there for.

Best of luck , I hope you get the house you want.

Stephanie McCarty answered:
Dear Desperate Buyer. In fact you had rights that protected you during the due diligence period, you just simply failed to exercise them to your benefit. Read the contract language and discuss it with your agent. If there is no agreement prior to expiration of the due diligence period, in the GAR contract form, if that is what you signed, then you did in fact accept the property as is without any repairs. Verbal agreement is not binding.

It's not about getting the seller to make repairs, it's about buying a home. If you love the property just move on, lesson learned, and make the best of it. You wanted a house right?
