WHEDA requiring home fixes PRIOR to closing - WHAT?? *UPDATE*
So we are working on closing on a house, but seriously, WHEDA has been giving us such a headache. We were supposed to close this Friday :( The Seller has been awesome to work with, so very grateful for that.
Long story short -
*WHEDA did an appraisel at the end of July, but waited until a two weeks to give us a list of things that "concerned" them, and required estimates done by contractors and electricians to fix said problems, and the source of funds to fix said problems. We scheduled them immediately, then turned in the estimates and let them know our options (We are buying the house "as-is", so the seller is not interested in fixing anything - so we have to come up with the money).
*Now, 1 week before closing, they are requiring to have said problems fixed prior to closing.
This is so frustrating, but the seller has decided to grant an extension for 3 more weeks so we have enough time to fix the issues at hand and scrape of up the funds to fix everything. This is ridiculous, especially since these "issues" were going to be fixed in a span of the next year of us living there, so having to cough up the money immediately really sucks for us :(
Has anyone else gone through this or something similar??
So having spoken to everyone - from the seller, attorney, and loan officer - the seller says he is more than willing to work with us, and that to basically take the estimates we were given and tack it onto the offer. They can then ammend the Purchase to Offer and hopefully everything falls into place from there!
