Yes. Everything that is mounted on the wall stays as part of the house. You cannot take it with you.

You wrote "an" attorney, instead of "MY" attorney. If you have not sought counsel in an effort to protect your interests regarding the partition suit, now is the time! The key question (it would seem) is whether you can sell and settle before the court ordered auction and receive more than half value from the proceeds of sale.

Seek legal advice!

Best of luck!

There is nothing in writing from a legal perspective that requires a built in closet in the US. The built in closet is something that realtors impose because it helps them sell. When you convert to build a new room, legally you have to have a window, door, electricity. You can use a window unit for air conditioning. Think about it, would you want a bedroom that does not have a closet? Are any Wardrobe's or Armoires large enough to house your clothes and shoes? The answer is no. A realtor wants the built in closet because the buyer wants it but legally, you do not have to have a built in closet. These are the facts. ... more

Seller Warranties are covered in section 5 of the Arizona Residential Resale Purchase Contract. These warranties are limited in part with a property that is sold "As-Is" by addendum, executed at the time of contract.

As you can see, your question is incomplete. Hope this helps!

In AZ, tile is the way to go. Laminate says low-end, in my opinion - those re-doing floors to get rid of nasty carpet and sell their house.

Good for you doing some homework!

Yes, there are rules for the scope and limitation of handyman jobs and those requiring a licensed contractor. They exist to protect the general public and can vary (flipper vs. owner occupant).
Since all are law and written in Arizona Revised Statutes, you would do well to contact a real estate attorney for interpretation, explanation, and conversation - what needs to be done and who to do it.

From a standpoint of marketability, the lawful requirement of disclosure, liability and Seller warranties, it may be wise (in my opinion) to hire a general contractor to oversee your project.

Good luck!

Karen Peyton answered:
The Buyer's appraisal contingency is satisfied when the property's appraised value meets or exceeds the full purchase price of Purchase Contract, without further action of the Buyer.

Your agent should receive updates from the Buyer's lender as the loan progresses through underwriting on the Loan Status Update (LSU) form. In particular, line 55 of the form shows the date the appraisal was received by the lender.

Was your appraised value "less" than purchase price???

If so, the appraisal contingency does kick in and the timing is important - however it is most unusual your agent would not have received notification from the Buyer's agent and/or lender alerting them of this fact.

Tell your agent to call the lender to find out "when" and to also inquire about the Buyer's capacity to complete the transaction without further price negotiation.

Good luck!
