Rewrite purchase and sale agreement? In June, I signed a purchase agreement for a new home from a large, reputable home builder. My lender locked me in for a rate and I am due to close in Sept. My lender brought an issue to the home builder. While looking at the title for the lot, it became clear that the building company did not own the lot that they sold me in June. Another company owned the land and sold it to the builder. The underwriter is asking that the purchase agreement be rewritten with the date that the lot was owned by the builder. The builder has some sort of an agreement with the land owning company, the details of which are confidential and they will not disclose. My builder is refusing to rewrite the contract to satisfy the underwriting of my lender of choice. They are telling me I need to find a different lender and my lender will not budge on the contract rewrite issue. One other piece: an addendum to the purchase and sale agreement has the following language included. I have removed the names of any companies affiliated. "HOME BUYER is aware that in the event BUILDER is not in title on the date the purchase and sale agreement is written, this contract will be contingent upon BUILDER purchasing said property, and due to lending guidelines, the contract may be required to be rewritten. All mutually accepted terms and conditions of the original contract will remain the same." What are my legal rights as a buyer at this point? Can I force the builder to rewrite the contract with some legal pressure? Can the lender move forward without the rewrite?September 08 2013 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
