194 Questions Answered

Q. Closed on a home and some of the repairs were not completed from the addendum. Who is responsible for fixing issues?
A: If the contract called for repairs to be done, why did you close and tender your purchase proceeds to the seller before the seller properly completed all of the repairs?
Q. What legal repercussions if any could I face if I walk away from buying a property that I signed a contract on
A: The terms of your contract will govern and dictate your obligations.
Q. Are Buyers required to share a copy of the inspection report with the Seller?
A: Not in New York but if a purchaser wants a credit or repairs done, the report is the strongest evidence to support his or her entitlement.
Q. Have survey dispute with neighbors They are now selling house Should we contact their realtor
A: You would be better served to contact your surveyor and your title insurance company who insured your title to the property.
Q. Does the seller need to get title insurance on a property that is free and clear and is being purchased in a cash deal?
A: The purpose of title insurance is to guarantee you that the property is “free and clear”.
Q. I need to get on the deed of a house currently owned by my mom- but inhabited and paid for by me- where do I start?
A: You should start by asking your mother to cooperate in preparing and executing the deed conveying title to the real estate to you.
Q. Does a buyer need to remove any contingencies or are they automatically removed after the contingency expiration date?
A: The language in the contract should dictate that answer.
Q. Is it legal for a seller to write up their own land contract agreement using a form from legal zoom?
A: Yes, provided that it contains all the necessary elements required for a contract. At the same time, it could be like walking on landmines.
Q. Only my husband's name is on the deed and mortgage to our house. He passed away. Am I responsible for repaying the loan?
A: Not personally, but if you do inherit the real estate you take subject to this mortgage.
