Not only can you terminate, but you MUST terminate if you do not wish for your client to buy it as/is! Due Diligence periods are great, but if you don't watch the time table, your client just bought it as is.

If your Due Diligence period is up you have lost your ability to terminate. There seller does not have to respond to your Amendment to Address Concerns. If you do not terminate prior to the end of the Due Diligence you are accepting the property as is.

Are there any other contingencies outstanding?

Did the seller respond? If it was after the due deligence has elapsed, the buyer does have options that must be exercised in writing. Is your buyer trying to get out of the contract? Why else would both agents allow the seller to go beyond the due deligence period?

Just curious.

Include this in your amendment and you can. I noticed this statement while looking through the 2008 Special Stipulations section of the GAR Contracts. Pretty neat!

In the event this Amendment to Address Concerns with Property is not accepted by Seller and delivered back to Buyer prior to
the end of the Buyer’s Right to Terminate this Agreement, this Amendment to Address Concerns with Property shall serve as
notice of termination of this Agreement upon expiration of the Right to Terminate period as set forth herein.

You need to terminate before your due dilligence period is up.
