Lender required repairs on a foreclosure?I am trying to buy a house from Freddie Mac and the appraisal can back with a few lender required repairs. The toilet needs to be fixed, two of the baseboard heaters need to be removed and the big whammy... the septic pump is broken. After getting estimates it should be about 1200 dollars in repairs. What is the likely hood of the bank approving the repairs? And if they don't elect to repair the house, what happens to the house? Will they put it up for a cash sale? My close date is set for July 5th and that is after an extention has been filed because it took them 3 weeks to get paperwork back to my people. They are very, very slow.
