...Before the closing. Finally, after four months of heavily marketing the home at 718 Shadow Bay Way, in Sarasota Florida. I have a great contract to purchase this beautiful piece of Real Estate! However, the buyer somehow got in touch (by phone) with the seller and asked her if he could move stuff into the garage BEFORE the closing. She told him YES. Then she asked me if it was okay. I told her NO WAY and immediately contacted the agent for the buyer. I told him to PLEASE sit down with his buyer and explain that in no way, should he be contacted the seller directly.
The buyer's agent said he would do that and that these folks haven't bought a home in many, many years and just didn't know how things worked.
Then today, my associate, Joe was driving by the house and discovered THE BUYER, putting stuff into the garage. He stopped to ask him how he got in and the buyer said that the seller gave him the code to the garage keypad.
I have contacted the seller to tell her to change the code, but she says now it's too late and she doesn't want to make waves. I told her the waves would start if something happens at the closing and those people have to get their stuff out. I told her that there is a liability issue and that's she's responsible if anything happens to them while they are on her property.
I contacted the buyer's agent and told him the same thing. I'm asking for your help...your horror stories that you can share with me so that I can forward them to my seller. The closing is on August 20.
Thanks for your help
