Talk to your attorney. They can put a lean on the property. This way they cant sell until they pay you money.

Most definitely not fair play , it was also your attorneys responsiblity to remind you of the remainder earnest money. Sorry to hear this happened to you. I guess they must have had a higer offer and thats the reason played this unfair to you!

you should ask your agent if this house closed for a higher offer than yours!

Condo conversions are tricky and you will want to consult with an expert on doing this. Purchasing it as an investment property and getting rental income is an excellent long-term option. I would be more that happy to review with you the purchase options, please call me to discuss.

With warm regards,

Personally I would explore the idea of pre-possession provided your attorneys can draft up language that protects you.

Paying only HOA and utilities certainly helps you save your funds, and your pre-possession may give you an opportunity to *try* out the home first.

Good luck!!
