here is a great place to find contract for deed homes. credit usually not an issue but you will need around 10% down of the sale price of the property to buy one.

Call the Sherriff’s office and ask them for an accounting, if the deal has already closed. Unless the Sheriff has actually been paid the proceeds from the auction then the bank has not received anything yet. The buyer has a period of time to pony up.

Financing Kentucky One Home at a Time
I answer questions about financing real estate based on my decades of experience dealing with mortgage underwriters. This answer is my personal opinion, has not been reviewed or approved by the company I work for. I do not offer legal or tax advice, if you need answers from an attorney or CPA find one knowledgeable in your local market.

Thank you for all your answers. I didn't sign an extension, not wanting to risk more earnest money, and signing off my contingencies. Eventually we did close the deal.

Don Tepper answered:
Most likely: Yes. They can ask. Well, in fact, we know they can ask. Your question seems to be whether they can ask on a site that may not be secure. Probably yes.

You can decline to provide that information online, as you did. And they can decline to accept you.

And more specifically: How did you plan on sending that information? By mail? Fax? Are those any more secure? Not necessarily. And that only protects the transmission. Once your information arrives--whether by a web form, mail, or fax--you have no control over how the recipient will handle or protect it.

I'm guessing that they have a way of doing business, of processing applications. You're asking for an exception, a different way of handling that. At the very least, you've disrupted their process. At worst, you've pegged yourself (in their eyes) as a trouble-maker--someone who's starting raising issues even before the application's been approved.

Understand: I appreciate your concern. It's not out of line. But they have their way of processing applications, and you've decided to seek another way. There's a risk to that.

Hope that helps.

Yes it's common. It is very simple to have you on the deed which is the real proof of ownership.

Cody Anderson answered:
Is there a contingency in place where the seller needs to find a home of their choice?

Title issues?

I have never once had a seller hold up a sale.. So fill in the HUGE blank of why the seller is holding up the sale.

Thank you
