Alan May answered:
If the buyer backs out during negotiations... within the appropriate contract clauses, it's probably that none of the buyer's earnest money goes to the seller.

If they back out after all contingencies have been met (attorney review, inspection, mortgage) their entire earnest money would be at risk.

Read your contract, and consult with your Realtor or attorney.

You can't. You or your realtor need to reach out to the agent listed.

first of all i agree with is not the average person attempting to rent a affordable
apartment that needs the reality check here okay. of course those of you who are making the astronimical incomes that afford these apartments going for 2000 plus a month can look down on your less fortunate breathen and talk smack..... of course the agent or realtor who is also involved in the price wars going on in union city and the surronding communities are in on it too. don't try the oh we dont know what's going on act cause it is old... some of the major online rental sites are being used as scam gardens,such airbnn which has become notorious for scams, duping unsuspecting parties and the agents/realtors are often aware of it and participants.. of course this homeowner from westchester county would speak as she does,..she probably never had worry about income, where she will live or how much it would cost,,, ms. westchester doesn't have to concern herself with issues such as being able to have a place to stay, which is not luxury as she seems to insinuate.. the question is why is the rent so high just to live around water?
im sorry ms. westchester i know alot of apartments that rent for 1500 that are not crappy..
why should i be shamed into living on the waterfront or having a marble countertop or having to pay thousands of dollars just to say i have a fabulous doorman to open my door for me? it is apparent that there are individuals who feel that the more you pay in rent the better you live or you are on a higher status then others who are not as fortunate.. that is a misconception.. alot of those crappy apartments became crappy by the high paying rent dweller who lived there previously??? surely it wasn't the ones who couldnt afford to live in them.. im sorry because you live minutes away from manhattan and it is a short commute is a vain selfish reason to price rents as high as they are along the waterfront.. the comment about people asking for 1500 a month are usually on vouchers or some kind of goverment assistance program is a illusion that you are under ms. westchester.. there are many people who work are paying rent straight up without assistance.. paying that 1500 in rent and then starving for the rest of the month.. last but not least there are millions of crappy ass apartments in new york city that is not worth the 2000 or more that you asked your clients for..i think it is you who needs the reality check weschester

Rich Koch answered:
Not only is your property tax part of the maintenance fee, but so is the interest on the building's underlying mortgage, both of which are tax deductible. Additionally, that same fee covers your utilities - another separate bill you'd need to worry about with any neighboring condo.
Do be aware that the Doric is a co-op, not a condo, so there are a few differences. Because you are buying into the co-op as a shareholder, there is a board approval process. Also, subletting is strictly controlled, and in general frowned upon. Subletting requires a separate board approval, and subletting without approval can result in your losing your unit, and incurring considerable fines and lawyers fees.

Karen Peyton answered:
You need knowledge of the present lease agreement and also the laws of your state concerning the rights of tenants.

This is NOT the time NOT to have an agent! If you don't know what you're doing you can find yourself with all kinds of problems, and in all kinds of trouble.

Get an agent! One referred by family or friends - or use the tab at the top of the page.

Good luck!
