In addition, the fact that you had papers that were not in order that could have caused the delay and financial damage to the seller is enough to jeopardize your deposit monies...your attorney should review and be able to give you the best answer.

The listing agent must schedule to remove the sign as soon as possible after closing (approx. 2-3 days).

In New Jersey you won't be able to get the C.O. or "close" unless there is someone 55 or better on the deed. Some communities do have an exemption for 48 and over but they are usually used up during the initial building of the communities. I know of 3 in Ocean County that can have 48+ buy if you qualify. Thank you and good luck with your purchase. ... more

Hi Kay,

Define "inactive", inactive as in with a referral company? The you can ask for a referral on the sale. Otherwise with an inactive license and not a NJ license, from what I know, you are not entitled to a reduction or a referral.

Let us know how it goes!

To expand on your last posting, I will tell you that the rates are ticking up as Javier had mentioned. The problem with this is, depending on your financial profile, this may pose a problem for you. You need to make a decision and lock with the bank you decide to use, b/c the pre-approval will be done on the rates that are available today (or when your mortgage banker runs the underwriting scenario). If the rates go up, which they are doing, then you run the risk of the loan not being approved any longer. So, what you thought you had today, is gone tomorrow. This is not good practice when you are putting earnest money deposits down at the contract time, to later find out you can't get the loan, and you lose your deposit!

Dear Chocho,

The buyer is required to be qualified to buy an Income restricted apartment. Also, when it comes to re-sale you cannot sell the property beyond a certain value. For further questions, please feel free to contact me anytime.

Please inform your Attorney right away. You should be able to back-out until the Attorney review process is concluded.

Trupti Gandhi answered:
Tez,

You are not obliged unless you have a contract to the contrary. Even if you do have a contract read closely you might have an escape clause... and of course no contract should really last for 4 years.

Also, it is in your interest to go to a local expert instead of replying upon someone who you knew before sometime in an entirely different market.

Please call me on 609.903.8903 if you need help with buying in 08536, 08550 or WWP school district part of 08540. I specialize in this school district.

Have to agree with Gina - responsiveness is such an important quality in a listing agent and missing the beat as the expiry approached to discuss your willingness to and her strategy to relist is odd.

As far as the sign and/or lockbox remaining at your home, it should really be removed if the property is not actively listed.

Good luck to you,
Jeanne Feenick

I would think that the best protection for the seller would be for the buyer to get his own mortgage

Joimarie,
Attorney's need to be licensed to practice law in the state they practice. I'm not aware that any additional licensing is required to approve contracts, but if you are asking about closing a transaction, there may be additional bonding to handle large sums of money.
If you need a closing attorney, ask your agent for a referral.

Start by framing out a general location - perhaps based on proximity to your workplace. Jot down your vision...capture your thoughts. Think about what matters most to you? What are you trying to achieve/solve with this move? What are you looking for in a home? What do you consider must haves? ...nice to haves? Don't worry about finding the answer at this point, just capture your thoughts. An agent who knows the areas of interest will be a terrific asset for you. She will help to bring it into focus for you. She will also be able to provide you with recommended resources, such as mortgage pros, attorneys, inspectors.

Mary has provided some great links for you to begin answering some of the basic questions. If you can identify target locations, then you can enlist the support of a local agent. Trulia is a great place to find one - just go to the "find a pro" section.

What an exciting time for you. Think about general location, find a great agent to help you, and then trust your instincts as you move along. You'll know when its right!

Best,

Unyque,

If I understand your question, since you are on this site as a buyer...you wrote an offer and the seller signed it on 7/30.

Now if it's a "normal" sale, the contract will have contingency dates for deposits, inspections, mortgage committment...and an "on or before" closing date. If you are using an attorney, and a Real Estate agent, they can explain it to you. Typically from contract date to closing date is between 60-90 days.

If it's a "short sale"...forget all the rest of the mumbo jumbo about who signs what...bottom line is, once the contract is signed and submitted to the bank, with ALL the necessary documentation.... it's ultimately up to the bank to approve the sales price.... AND it can take MONTHS !!! I have seen many a contract closing date come and go while waiting for the bank to approve the short sale.

Again, if you are using an agent and/or an attorney they can explain your rights and obligations regarding the contract.
