The buyers were adamant. “If the house is NOT completely done we are not closing!”
My response was probably not what the buyer’s expected:
I suggested that their best course of action would be to speak to an attorney.
I am a real estate broker. I fill in the blanks on contracts but I do not interpret them. I can not suggest courses of action regarding the contract or discuss the possible remedies contained therein.
It’s hard to keep quiet. I saw the disappointment in their faces. But my role in the transaction is very limited. And I cannot stray beyond the boundaries of my discipline.
I really wanted to help.
And I think that I did by making the best suggestion that I could have in that situation!
