Contingencies on a Fannie Mae HomePath House - Do I Need a Lawyer?I will be submitting my first offer tomorrow for a Fannie Mae HomePath property. I only have 2 VERY important contingencies. After talking to my agent has his very best to assure me that it will be included in the offer (Fannie Mae Addendum and Realtor purchase contract) but I still feel extremely uneasy because it's my first time. I am NOT requiring anything else, no closing cost contribution, etc.I ABSOLUTELY want to make sure the 2 contingencies are clear in my offer:1- If something comes up in the inspection I don't like, including expensive repairs or foundation issues etc., I can simply walk away and not be entered into a binding contract. (MOST important)2- Although I have a pre-approval letter attached to offer, being approved for the actual loan is another contingency. This does not seem to be an issue.I read the Fannie Mae addendum completely, and I understood that their addendum supersedes all other contracts. I want to make sure my agent makes my contingencies very very clear while submitting the offer.
