What are our rights if a broker doesn’t follow through to closing?

Deal Score0

We put a good faith deposit down,paid for the appraisal, and survey.We are approved,and have a Mortgage Loan Commitment letter.Now the broker isn’t communicating at all,and seems to not want to follow through.We have had 2 closing dates,but she always comes up with a reason it can’t be done.Can we transfer all we’ve done to this point to another broker,or mortgage company?
Thank you for any help or advice you can give us.
I am talking about the broker.This is a family owned real estate agency,so the agebt,and broker are tired into the same office.We have been put off by both the agent,and the broker.
I actually just received a call from her,telling me the loan company she submitted our info to,and approved us, is no longer financing manufactured homes.
I called and spoke directly to the loan company,and they never received any of our info,and in fact they only finance manufactered homes.So again,we were lied to by the broker.

    at this point why is the broker/agent deciding the closing date, does the buyer have a lawyer if so call the lawyer and ask what is the delay, if no lawyer call the buyer yourself to see why the delay, but I would demand a closing date, no agent should be able to change the closing date they do not even need to be at the closing only the lawyers need be or a title agency people

    if the agent/broker refuses to return your calls first file a complaint the state real estate board then get a lawyer and sue for specific performance

    Are you talking about the BROKER or the AGENT? They are not the same! An Agent works for a Broker.

    If you are talking about the Agent, as I think you are, then call and speek to their Broker and ask the Broker for a different agent.

    your question is a bit unclear. the AGENT is the Realtor you’re working with. The Agent works for/under a BROKER IN CHARGE of the agency.

    so, who is holding up the process? call the closing attorney and ask if there is a holdup, and if so, why! also call your real estate agent, and ask the same question! if you don’t get an answer from the agent, call the broker in charge.

    there could be a valid reason for this closing being held up! often times, the underwriter hasn’t given the final approval on your mortgage, or the seller hasn’t finished repairs as per contract, etc. don’t be TOO frustrated, closings don’t always happen on the date specified, even though they should!

    HI – I understand the Broker is not returning your calls, or has lied to you – that gives us a bad name that is in the business.

    The Broker should always stay in contact with their clients. YES you can transfer to another Broker – ok – Or you can call the Lender that was doing the financing – and find out who else is able to do your loan with their company. If you have paid for the appraisal, your broker needs to release it to the NEW broker (ok – follow me so far).

    Do not know what state you live in, but here is a web site for you to check out – you can also put in key words on yahoo: manfacturing financing; moble home loans, etc
