Quick Question about after closing happening

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I recently sold my home.

After ALL the paperwork was finished and HUD-1 was being faxed and the closing was over.The real estate agent pulled out a Addendum/Endorsement to Agreement of Sale form.

I was about a shower handel that wasn't fixed that I even pointed out before closing. It works, just no the way they wanted.

Anyways this addendum to sale stated that the buyers would get 3 estimates from plumbers to fix the problem. The date of agreement on it is 3/28/10 when our closing was on 5/21/10!

We signed the form because we had to rush 1 hour away to make a second closing.

2 Questions;
1. Isn't the sale final after closing, how can new addendum be written up?
2. also, how can they be written on 5/21/10 with a date of 3/28/10?

Just curious how this works - I'm interested.

Thanks,
Ben

I hope that everything has been handled for you regarding this issue. Just like with all other legal documents, the date the document is drafted is the date that the document should be signed. If you have any questions, make sure you speak with your real estate agent.

Good luck

If you had agreed to the repairs during the option period, you are responsible for the repairs to be paid for because it was part of the contract. If you made a verbal promise to do it and they just put it in an addendum at closing -your responsible.

if the operation of the shower handle had changed from the time the home was inspected to the time you closed, then yes, as a seller, you are responsible to have it fixed.  i would've said "i'll buy a new damn shower handle and put it in myself tomorrow, write up the addendum for that"... but anyway, if all the paperwork was signed by both parties, then you could have just said "no" and walked out.
