Unfortunately, your question cannot be answered without reading the documents you signed. To that end, I strongly suggest you submit them to an attorney for review. While you want to know if you have further obligation, an attorney may determine your agreement was never legally binding and therefore void or voidable (e.g. did you receive a property disclosure statement?).

Best of luck!

Good afternoon.
Energy payback times (EPBTs) will vary depending on climate (latitude) and type of Photovoltaic (PV) panel. The International Energy Agecy IEA report "Life Cycle Inventories and Life Cycle Assessments of Photovoltaic Systems" by Vasilis Fthenakis, of the Brookhaven National Laboratory indicates that The latest EPBT typical rooftop installation in south Europe, (i.e., irradiation of 1700 kWh/m2/yr), correspond to 1.7, 1.7 and 0.8 years for mono-Si, multi-Si, and CdTe PV technologies, respectively.

There is currently a glut of solar panels, which may make solar more appealing at this time. There are some other good resources on Building Green website about this.topic.

Good question. I would start by offering to join a committee or the board. Being a Realtor and on the board of my HOA; I can attest to the fact that not enough people want to get involved in the process of joining the board or committies to help out in the community.

There is a lot you can do as a home owner in a community and you have the right to speak up... i always highly recommend that new home owners attend the first avaialble meeting and get a feel for what the board is like and ask for they can do to help out in the neighborhood to make it a better place for everyone to live.

From experience it goes a long way. besides helping out in a HOA is a great way to help preserve the community and make it an enjoyable place for everyone to live.

Good afternoon, Kyeshiad:
Here are also 10 tips for improving credit here: . I also suggest that you review the Trulia Blog "I have bad credit and no savings. Can I get a home or am I stuck renting?" (link below) If you meet this criteria, you can often get a loan. There are also several options for special financing and first time home buyer down payment assistance programs. Depending on your circumstances, you may be able to purchase sooner than you think. A brief phone conversation would fairly quickly get to the bottom of things and give you the direction you need.

i am sorry to hear about the issues you are having with your house. Unforutnately in the North Carolina offer to Purchase contract it does state that at closing the buyer accepts the home in the condition it is in now.

If you signed a due diligence repair request and agreement you MAY have some recourse. However; this is going to be something to take up with an attorney. Preferably the one that did the closing for you should know what legal rights you have.

The seller should have made you aware of the repairs being finished in a workmanlike condition and was to notify you in writing with documentation supporting that the repairs have been done. Your Realtor should have requested a copy of the invoices showing that and scheudled a reinspection prior to closing to verify that the work was completed as agreed upon.

The home isnpector has nothing to do with this. he did his job by doing the insopection and notifying you of what was wrong. You had the option to have him come back out for a reisnepction at an additional cost to you. On major repairs I usually do..something minor that you can tell by looking at it or turning on the water or flipping a sweithc I usually do not...But again this si something your Realtor should have advised you on.

The best answer here is unfortunatley to consult with an attorney and see what legal recourse, if any, you may have.
