Buying A House With Water Test Requirement
by Laurie from Maine USA
Regarding buying a house with water test requirement: Last minute request for water test, after closing was scheduled. Now being postponed again. We are rushing results. They insist on waiting a day to close.
What can we do to make the loan close as scheduled? Can we contact the lender ourselves and not the mortgage broker?
Kate Answers: Buying A House With Water Test Requirement
Dear Laurie, Not closing on time really stinks for both home buyers and sellers. Somebody overlooked the water test or did not realize it would be required. But no matter the reason, closing late is a huge inconvenience and costly.
There are no laws I know of saying who you can and can't contact during a real estate transaction. Even so, most wholesale mortgage lenders will not speak directly to borrowers. But over the years, I've seen an exception to pretty much everything in lending!
What I'd recommend first is contacting your Realtor and asking under the circumstances how you could command attention. Believe me, your real estate agent wants to get your transaction closed also so enlist your agent and together hopefully you can spark some attention.
