Bank approved my short sale but the seller will not close?I put in an offer for a short sale house and after six months it was approved by the bank and I got a welcome closing letter from the bank. It was decided we would close dec 10th but one week before closing the seller decided they needed more time. My lawyer sent a time is of the essence letter saying they must close by dec 15th. Tomorrow will be the 15th and it does not appear we will we closing because the seller said she won't close unless I give her 8000 to move out of the house. We have a signed contract and everything, my lawyer said I can sue but they have nothing so it would be of no merit. Am I supposed to forget about this house now? My agent doesn't return my calls, haven't heard from her in over 4 days. I don't know what I should do, I have 5000 in escrow when I offered on the house. My lawyer has no advice, I feel like I am wasting my time. Please any advice would be greatly appreciated.December 14 2013 - Englewood00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
