I am the seller. First step completed "good faith money" in escrow --here is the question/s .
Timelimts stated in first legal document for proceeding to p&s signing have run out by 11 days.
Do I have to sell? buyer is getting unreasonable and not working with his agent just mine.
Is there a conflict of interest?
Also real estate brokers contract has run out 12 days ago. What is my liability 2 him as well?

It would be wise to consult with a lender to see just how long it will be before you are eligible to buy. You may get a surprise & find that you can buy now. If you already have that answer & just can't wait until you are eligible, you need to know that finding that rent to own deal is a tough thing to do & there are the risks already mentioned in the other answers. One reason it is so rare to get a rent to own deal is because most sellers are not willing to wait long for the sale to happen. It has been my experience that the majority of sellers that are in the position to rent to own usually want the rent period to be less than a year.

I hope this info has been helpful & feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Hi Luniew,

If using the estimators available on the internet to price real estate was useful, buyers and sellers wouldn't need professionals who list and sell property every day.
Pricing is not as simple as Internet website developers would have you believe.

I would go look at the house, get to know the neighborhood, see the extras, go see other property, consult a pro for homes you probably aren't aware of for comparrison, and make your own -educated- decision.

Of course choosing a local real estate pro can help you save a lot of time.
(Not me, I'm on the Cape, but I can help you choose a local pro when you are ready.)

(Please note: when you choose an answer as a Best Answer, or at least give a thumbs up, it helps those who answer questions here.)

I agree that your best bet is to chat with a local loan officer. They can tell you where you stand now AND help you take steps to improve your credit. You can make a big improvement in as little as a year. Good luck! ... more

I agree with Heidi, it may have come in several forms from the city. Are you referring to the water line into the house or the sewer line heading out. It sounds like the line you are referring to is the water line coming in. Many cities/towns have sent notices to alot of homes to upgrade the line coming in. This would also be a good time to increase the size of the line coming in to allow for better water volume for current needs compared to over 80 years ago when the pipe was most likely installed. A plumber can best advise you on the current and future needs of your home, now is a good time to consider these things in case future expansion might be considered in the future.

What is your buyers agents advice on how to proceed? If you are using your own buyers agent they can advise how to proceed best given the negotiations so far. Sometimes there's special circumstances where the house is sold "AS IS" or if it's a hardship sale and the seller does not have the funds to provide any work such as the case with a short sale or foreclosure. These are items that would need to be considered. If you are not using a buyers agent and are dealing directly with the listing agent you should discuss these issues with your attorney on how to proceed given the documents you've already signed in your offer to purchase.
In a regual sale there frequently are items that are found that aren't on a reguular disclosure document because they may be out of the knowledge base for most all sellers. Should the listing agent have picked up on this? Probably not, it's outside the licencing of real estate agents to investigate and advise on certain issues like plumbing, electrical or structural issues other than to ask if all work performed was done with a permit and to current building codes or the codes at the time they were done. Normally items found on the home inspection that are of importance are written up in a document with supporting documentation and estimates of cost to ask that either the seller remedy or ask off the purchase price. Once again this would be specific to your negotiations and what has gone on already. If it's a safety issue or one that ould affect your ability to get financing then it might be more of an item for the seller to have to address optimumally.

Hope this helps,
