Also in the contract it said the attorney doing the closing would be the attorney for both the seller and buyer........I said no freaking way we will get our own.I know it sounds cynical...but if the realtors tell you that you should be concerned...they will lose the sale...and their commission...if you contact a real estate lawyer in that county you may be able to get some useful information...do you need a lawyer for the closing down there?
Yes, we have been talking to a attorney down there, things are different in Virginia though, they never even heard of a 3 day attorney review period for looking over a house sale contract.
Who is suppose to obtain a CO, been awhile since we bought a house. How would they even know the owner added 2 bedrooms, does someone go in each house when sold?
Things sure are going to be different down south......just hope things turn out okay.
