Legal Answers
311 Questions Answered
Q. Can the HOA hold us responsible for the incorrect roof color installed by the previous owner?
A: If the variance hearing does not go well you may need to contact an attorney to discuss your options against the seller who installed a roof without HOA approval of the color.
Q. I have entered in a lease to buy option with my landlord and now he does not want to sell after signing contract.
A: You may have more leverage here than you think, so long as the Option Agreement is in writing. A strong Demand Letter from an attorney may be enough to show this seller that you will not simply walk away and intend to take action to enforce your rights. Contact an attorney you have too much to lose to try to do this yourself.
Q. Colorado real estate contract. Timely terminated after inspection. Can attorney demand forfeit of earnest money?
A: You have a lot of money at risk here. Unfortunately, the answers to your question and your legal rights WRT demanding the return of your earnest money is dependant upon the specific language in the Buy/Sell Agreement the language you used in your termination. If you used the Colo Real Estate Div Buy/Sell Agreement and Notice to Terminate you should have the leverage. I recommend contacting an attorney ASAP to deal with the Seller's Attroney.
