Upon 7 days, buyer's agent asked for an extension in financial contingency because of some missing doc (Buyers have credit history in canada and they had delays in getting credit report from canada). We granted them an extension. After this buyers asked for another extension of 5 days. We granted that. Now the second extension finished yesterday and the buyer still isn't releasing the contingency. They have received all documents yesterday, but they say they are not comfortable releasing contingency till under-writer releases a commitment letter.<br/><br/>Needless to say, this is putting a lot of stress and does not seem fair. I am surprised there is no sanctity of what they signed and it is up to them to release contingency at their will. Clearly, it seems possible that buyers wants to play a "weighting game" if for some reason they lost interest in property. &nbsp;<br/><br/>As of now, I have no choice but to serve them notice to perform. If it goes to cancellation the loss is entirely mine in terms of time lost and doing open houses etc apart from disappointments.&nbsp;<br/><br/>Question is: Is there a way I can take the buyers to task and make them liable for their deposit? If they have all documentation required how can they escape removing the contingency? What if they are not presenting all documents to the under-writer deliberately?<br \><br \>8 replies Thu, 20 Feb 2014 23:48:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Buyer-is-hesitant-in-removing-loan-contingency/529272/ 2014-02-20T23:48:00Z good place to buy rental investment property http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/good-place-to-buy-rental-investment-property/529292/ I have $40,000 to use as a down payment.
