Short Sale - Protection to proptery
We are in the process of purchasing a short sale, everything is going smoothly (I guess). The property needs work and are willing to do that. We had to get special financing because it has an existing roof leak. But as time marches on with the "short sale process, to do list" of the property, it sits and we are experiencing lots of rain last night and today. I feel like I should be protecting the property, tarps, buckets, bull...... something! I know the property is not mine yet but does the bank have any responsibility to protect. We are buynig the property as a "land value" the bank doesn't want to hear about the issues with the house and again we know that but in the case of thing maybe getting worse.... I feel very anxious just sitting here. there are things like developing mold to consider...... What can I say to the Realtor? I did bring it to her attention and she agreeed the property should be protected but did not outline any course of action. What to do?
