I, Cesar, gave Lennar Homes the downpayment for my future hame in Stoney Brook West, 2216 Black lake Blvd. The closing was set for July, 2007. In June I had an emergency and had to leave the contry for three weeks, but I let them know and told them to get in contact with my son if they need me for any thing. When I thought that I was ready then they said that I did not qualify for the loan. Never signed any cancellation and they never returned my money. I'm still in shock. Just thinking what stratagy can I use to fight this empire, Lennar Home. Hope to hear from you soon.

"You"... anyone with suggestions

AUTHOR: Angela - (U.S.A.)

I believe the person writing in this forum is referring to "you" as anyone who may have advise in how to proceed. I might be wrong, but that's what I got from it.

This could be a problem.

AUTHOR: Nikki - (U.S.A.)

When you purchase new construction, there is usually a clause in your contract to the effect that you have a certain amount of days to get prequalified for a mortgage. If something happens where you were qualified at contract signing, but when the house is ready to close you are no longer qualified, you lose your deposit. You see, they have built the house to your specifications and now cannot sell it to you so they are entitled to keep your deposit.

Years ago, if someone qualified for a mortgage at contract signing, they could usually qualify for the mortgage at closing too, unless the home buyer did something to his own credit that caused him to be no longer qualified. Construction companies had that clause to cover themselves in case the home buyer signed the contract, then defaulted on his creditors which caused him not to get the loan at the end.

I guess they still have that clause. Today, it could very well be the fault of the mortgage terms changing rather than your fault. If the economy was better and they could sell the home they built for you right away, they may consider returning your deposit. However, with today being what it is in the construction and mortgage industry, I don't know that they will. Have a look at your contract and see what it says.

Also, after you are pre-qualified and your home is being built, I don't think the mortgage companies even start to look at your mortgage qualifications again until they start the "ball rolling", 30 or 60 days before the home is ready to be closed.
