09 Aug Seller’s attorney fired his clients one week before closing
Looking for some outside opinion on the matter…
We're on the buyer side of a single family home transaction. During the process so far, the communication hasn't been great.
We come to find out that the attorney fired the sellers now one week before closing. We have everything like mortgage ready to go. Now, we're not sure if we should start canceling.
- Has anyone dealt with a situation like this before?
- We're going to be dealing with fees to change things a week before close. I'm assuming we're out of luck and have to pay those?
- The attorney that fired the sellers is also currently holding onto our deposit. Should I be worried about this?
Note: We've already gotten in touch with our lawyer… but wanted to see if anyone has experienced something like this before?
