We can afford to finance a roof, but we can't get insurance until the roof is replaced and I do not want to buy someone else a roof before closing on the house for obvious reasons.<br/><br/>I'm miffed that it got this far into the process without any of the realtors, lawyers, brokers involved saying anything.<br/><br/>Any advice or tricks-up-the-sleeve for us (besides walking away)?<br \><br \>8 replies Thu, 29 Aug 2013 13:45:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Old-roof-FHA-Short-Sale/509132/ 2013-08-29T13:45:00Z What means MAKE ME MOVE http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-means-MAKE-ME-MOVE/502286/ 1 reply Wed, 17 Jul 2013 02:41:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-means-MAKE-ME-MOVE/502286/ 2013-07-17T02:41:00Z Who do I contact about this property? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Who-do-I-contact-about-this-property/438576/ 4 replies Tue, 10 Apr 2012 19:48:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Who-do-I-contact-about-this-property/438576/ 2012-04-10T19:48:00Z How can I verify that someone has a real estate license in Florida if they work independently? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-can-I-verify-that-someone-has-a-real-estate-license-in-Florida-if-they-work-independently/262465/ 2 replies Thu, 30 Jul 2009 15:33:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-can-I-verify-that-someone-has-a-real-estate-license-in-Florida-if-they-work-independently/262465/ 2009-07-30T15:33:00Z
