Who is Responsible for Outstanding ClaimWe recently went through purchasing a short sale home. In the initial contract, we requested money from an outstanding claim on the roof. The contract was accepted by both parties. Issue after issue, we were pressed by our agent to remove the line from the contract about this claim and said we could handle this claim post close. We removed the line and finally closed on the house. Now, we are being told that the claim will not be paid and we can get a lawyer ourselves to sue the bank. In my opinion, my agent's company should be responsible for providing us this money. They represented us and told us to remove the line from our contract. What advice can you give me??September 17 2013 - Saint Louis0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
