As a seller, am I obligated to sign the FHA Amendatory Clause?I'm selling my home, and we're just a couple of days from closing. However, for reasons out of my control, the process is going slowly because the buyer's FHA loan requires the roof to be certified, which will be done the day before closing (the realtors involved are trying to get the certificate issued before the actual repair.)Anyway, without even having the buyer's loan approved by the lender/underwriter, escrow is asking me to wire all the money for my closing costs + sign an FHA Amendatory Clause that protects the buyer's deposit in case his loan is not approved.Am I obligated to sign this FHA Amendatory Clause? Can I refuse this and still be able to sell the home to the buyer? The reason why I'm asking is because it's already been almost 30 days since the buyer signed the purchase agreement. If his loan goes south at this point, I'll have nothing to cover my loss because I will have waited for him almost 30 days, and I'm paying double mortgage now.Contrary to what the purchase agreement and contigency removal docs say (both signed by the buyer), this FHA Amendatory Clause fully protects the buyer's deposit. But if his loan is not approved, I'd like to request that the buyer at least pays for my mortgage this month, using part of his deposit, because I'd have waited for almost 30 days for nothing.Thoughts?
