Every buyer has the right to do a final walk thru. This is the buyer's final opportunity to cancel the transaction if the walk thru is disappointing or does not meet the buyer's contract requirements. Yes, a buyer can hold up the closing of escrow. You need to know that once the buyer closes escrow, anything wrong with the home after that point is the buyer's responsibility. Don't you think that buyer wants to verify everything before closing escrow? This is what the final walk thru means.... more
If it is a pest inspection I would assume that the entire area would be inspected. If anyone would choose where to inspect I would assume that it would be the owner, potential buyer, or the inspector.

Sounds to me like the seller may have received a better offer and is trying to get out of the deal. He can not unilaterally decide to change the terms and conditions he agreed to. Otherwise what's the point of a contract! If you have not removed your contingencies you should be fine.... more
Most termite companies will offer some warranty of their work. However if they didn't do any work and only provided a clearance that's something different because as you correctly point out the swarming may have occurred recently. If it is a reliable local builder they may be willing to help you out as well assuming their reputation is important to them. Incidentally, this is not an uncommon situation whether it is new construction or a resale, unfortunately.... more
You would have to formally dissolve the HOA, which is probably not a good idea as you have an "undivided interest" with the other owner. You are trying to save a couple of $$$ but it could turn out to be a big headache for you.
45.75 % with small vacancy factor and the rest owners. Its interesting but if N and S Redondo were separate then the rental factor is higher in N Redono. Many streets have 2 on a lot and its very dense in the 2 blocks south of Artesia Blvd. Some streets are one way as a result. I got the statistics from my market leader site log in below.
