We as buyers have placed a 1000$ earnest money and have met all of our financial obligations. We decided to move the closing date to Jan 22, 2010 being that all of our finances&nbsp;are in order. Little did we know the deed had not been transfered to the bank yet. This deed hold up has forced us to the end of our contract almost and the bank refuses to extend the contract untill the first contract is up. Our worry is that they might have a better offer in waiting thus ending our contract as of Feb 15th. Do we as buyers have any rights in this matter. I would think an automatic extension should be in order being the only people at fault here is the bank for going into contract without the deed work done and the people who process the deed work for taking so long to&nbsp;processing. Completely frustrated by the "not knowing what we can do" aspect of this. Any help would beappreciated.</p><br \><br \>1 reply Mon, 08 Feb 2010 03:28:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Can-the-bank-not-give-contract-ext-on-contract-for-a-home-they-own-when-the-hold-up-is-there-fault/322590/ 2010-02-08T03:28:00Z I'm trying to buy a home for 15000 and i'm a first time home buyer can zillow help http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-trying-to-buy-a-home-for-15000-and-i%27m-a-first-time-home-buyer-can-zillow-help/305908/ 9 replies Fri, 11 Dec 2009 22:33:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-trying-to-buy-a-home-for-15000-and-i%27m-a-first-time-home-buyer-can-zillow-help/305908/ 2009-12-11T22:33:00Z do you have rent to own http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/do-you-have-rent-to-own/212282/ 1 reply Thu, 19 Mar 2009 00:07:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/do-you-have-rent-to-own/212282/ 2009-03-19T00:07:00Z
