Is it ok to email seller 3 months after closing with a question?
My husband and I moved in to our house on December last year. The house was built in 2010, we had an inspection done and everything came back fine. One month ago while organizing the garage we saw a crack on the wall. I check the inspection report and there was no mention about the crack. I spoke to the inspector and send him a picture and he said it looks like a settlement crack. Our neighborhood has a private Facebook page and I noticed that the seller is still there so I was thinking about sending him a message and asking about the crack. Is it ok for me to do that??

Can a room without a closet be called a bedroom in Florida?
We saw a 2010 home in Central Florida advertised as a 4 bedroom but the 4th bedroom upstairs has no closet. It has a bathroom,a window but no closet. The county site shows as a 3 bdr. We really liked the home but wondering if could be an issue reselling in the future as a "4 bedroom".

What is a wall easement??

Answer
On the map of the lot it shows  where they accounted for  "10 feet wall and drainage easement" on the back of the property. Its new construction...So I dont know if meant that the builder would put a wall to separate from the other neighborhood just behind us...Very confusing

What is a wall easement??

Answer
Since the easement restrict things you can do on your property, does that decrease the value of a property ?? I am asking because we are having a house build and the lot has a 10 feet wall and drainage easement. I am really bummed out now because  I dont think we will have enough room now to build a pool and to be honest I did not know too much about easements...Almost thinking about waking way from this deal now even though we already put $ 5,000.00 down.Am I overreacting??

Itemized Fee Worksheet not making sense......
My mortgage broker just sent me the Itemized fee worksheet and I am not understanding. I live in Florida and I am getting a conventional loan .I am putting 60% down. I specifically told them that I do not want an escrow account and she told me would not be a problem since I was putting more than 20% down. I will just pay the amount for taxes and insurance myself. Its exactly what I do with my current mortgage, so she emailed me the form and it is showing that she added an amount on the section 1001 (initial deposit into escrow). Is she just not paying attention or am I missing something????

What happens after home inspection?
We are in the process of selling our home and the buyers had the inspection done on Friday afternoon.We haven't heard anything back from the buyers in regards to any issues. My Realtor is saying that no news is good news. If there was any requests for repair,for example, would the buyers agent had already contacted my Realtor by now or no?Thanks!
