Zillow Advice: Buying Process - a title issue came up right before closing http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/a-title-issue-came-up-right-before-closing/503522/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate If you signed the Regional ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/a-title-issue-came-up-right-before-closing/503522/ <p>If you signed the Regional Sales Contract form of the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors (NVAR), title issues are addressed in paragraph 16 on page 4. That paragraph includes the following language: "Title is to be good and marketable, and insurable by a licensed title insurance company with no additional risk premium&nbsp; Title may be subject to commonly acceptable easements, covenants, conditions and restrictions of record, if any; otherwise, Purchaser may declare this Contract void, unless the defects are of such character that they may be remedied within 30 Days beyond the Settlement Date. In case action is required to perfect the title, such action must be taken promptly by Seller at Seller's expense."&nbsp; If you signed a contract with that language, and you and the buyers have differing opinions of what that language means, then you should pay an experienced real estate attorney to advise you on your rights and obligations.

What does the contract say? the laws vary state by state. In California, standard CAR purchase contracts allow for the return of the EMD to the buyer within a specified time period, by default 17 days, should the buyer elect to cancel the transaction. Best of luck.<br/><br/><br/> Thu, 25 Jul 2013 09:21:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/a-title-issue-came-up-right-before-closing/503522/ 2013-07-25T09:21:00Z
