Thanks for all your answers... The seller is a company. It's a brand new home, built as part of a neighborhood redevelopment project. I did not have an agent, the seller did. The seller's agent created the 26 page contract document, I reviewed it, and signed. The seller's agent then took it to the seller, who is represented by an attorney. The attorney reviewed the entire contract prior to it being signed by the seller.There are some caps on the amounts, but suffice it to say, there is no stipulation in the contract to grant exception for those caps. I know I'm not an attorney, but from my experience, when stipulations are agreed upon contractually, even if outside issues make it more difficult to satisfy the terms of the contract, it is still the responsibility of both parties to abide by those stipulations. The seller, his attorney, and agent, should have been more knowledgeable regarding these stipulations prior to entering into a contractual agreement regarding the sale of this home, especially since they new upfront that this would be a VA Loan, with the Down Payment Assistance Grant, my credit, etc...From what I've seen thus far, there has been no attempt by the seller to satisfy the terms regarding the closing costs. The seller has been trying to manipulate numbers from my mortgage approval and the down payment grant I received for the purchase of this home to cover the closing costs, which in essence is still making me pay the closing costs.I don't know any attorney's so I'm just going to have to look around and see who I can find and hope that I can find an attorney who specializes in this.Oh, and Leo, yes, I've basically already done that in my email communication with the Bank, Seller, and the Seller's Attorney. I made it clear that the current arrangement was not working and at best a vain attempt to circumvent the contract we have for the home purchase.
