I have a home under contract and the buyers did their home inspection. They asked for 2 items to be dealt with which we agreed to, but made a slight change in the request. We initialed the change and sent the amendment back to the buyers agent to get his clients to initial the change. They never did. Due diligence ran out and still no word. I suspect the buyers agent never checked the amendment even though I told him we made a change.
Technically, since this document was never initialed by the buyers, it does not exist. My sellers do not have to do either of the two items requested by the buyers. However, they will.
It is critical that your buyer agent keep up with all paperwork and amendments. They are charged with protecting your interests, and I am not sure in this case this was done. In order to keep the deal rolling along my sellers have no problem doing what they were asked to do. The buyers don't realize the jeopardy their agent put them in. As a buyer, ask questions of your agent and follow what is happening.
