Buyers, sellers, listing agent, and selling agent. All original signatures on the same can't fax it around. HUD wants original signatures from all parties.

It doesn't matter who signs first, only that it is signed per Section 3.2 of the FHA handbook.

Note that the listing agent is not required to sign...only the buyer, buyer agent and seller. ... more

I just noticed your question and saw that no one answered it. I hope I am not too late to help you.

Although many realtors have the buyers, sellers and agents sign them when the contracts are being signed, it does not have to have the same date as the sales contract. ... more

Hi Jennifer,

The debate on the dangers associated with high-tension wires is ongoing. It depends upon with whom you speak. Only your own research on the matter can determine your position. If you determine that you would consider a property near tension wires, determine what discount is appropriate for you in order to offset the negative impact of the location.

Absolutely, the same model house in a development will carry different values depending upon the location. Busy intersections, smaller lots, privacy levels, and high-tension wires are all features, which affect buyers and the amount, which they are wiling to pay. (This is a reason that online estimates of value are often incorrect. This type of data is nearly impossible to factor in an algorithm.)

If you proceed with a purchase of a property near high tension wires, you have the opportunity to gain price and terms advantage at the time of the purchase. Some day, when you become a seller, you must be prepared for a long selling cycle, and be willing to accept less than your neighbors will command for their similar properties. Whatever new information and studies about EMF unfold in the future may affect the marketability of your property in future, and that pendulum could swing in your favor or against it.

Jeff Belonger answered:
So you are saying that no contract was done, but just counter offers? Question, who is giving you the FHA amendatory form before the contracts are finalized. That is what I would like to know. But the form needs to have the actual purchase price on there that is on the final contract.

Love when realtors answer mortgage questions. They are assuming and that's not good. Yes, a lender can do and or ask as the please. BUT... it's not mandatory to have this filled our prior to underwriting. It can be conditioned for.

Keith Sorem answered:
My questions would be this:
In most cases if the physical inspection reveals an additional problem, the inspector suggests that you obtain an inspection from a qualified expert, such as a roofing contractor.
You will have to pay for the inspection, but if it were me, I'd want to know, IN DETAIL, the exact condition of the roof. I would not rely on a physical inspector's report solely.

Once the roofing contractor has submitted a report, THEN you may have grounds to negotiate an allowance to repair/replace the roof.

Wayne F. Smith answered:

First, You need to confirm that the money is still in escrow. Did you use an attorney? If so, this falls directly on their desk to come to get a resolution. The next option is as was mentioned, through your listing agency to the buyers agency.
Since the buyer has now moved and may be unreachable, whatever legal recourse there may be on your part and whatever legal fees that may be incured by you to make you whole beyond the $2,000 deposit may be spending good money for no return. This is especially true if the buyer has vanished.
