Selling Home of Deceased Parents
I am in the process of selling a home that belonged to my parents (now deceased). The house has been on the market for 8 months and we finally have a buyer. We were all set to close today but the buyer's buyer has delayed siting "family emergency." I am having a very hard time believing this excuse. My buyer is paying cash but the sale of my house is contigent on her selling her house. To my knowledge there is no contingency on the sale of my buyer's home. I've been told by my attorney that there is nothing they can do but wait for my buyer's attorney to get a new closing date. My buyer really wants to buy my house and is also upset about this. How long can they delay this? Can they delay indefinitely? I really don't want to send a "Letter to perform" to my buyer since this is not her fault, but this process has been so frustrating!
