SUNTRUST MORTGAGE1001 SEMMES AVE RICHMOND, Virginia United States of America
I signed a contract to purchase a home. The date of the contract was 10/26/2010 and it was later in the evening. I for my own personal reasons, changed my mind on the purchase. I notified the Real Estate Agent/Brooker On Monday 11/01/2010 that I was no longer interested in the property. I thought that I was within my 5 days since and especially SUNDAY was the fifth day.I am now told by the Real Estate agent that they are going to keep my $7000 earnest money. Now, I am sure someone was working at Suntrust Bank on Sunday just in case someone changed their mind on buying a home. There was also an additional document that the realtor did not have me sign. It was an Amendment To Remove Inspection Contingency. How can they ammend the agreement on the 12th hour, yet I can't resciend my offer on the 12th hour. If you look at the calendar the contract wasn't signed until the 26th of Oct, and that was on a Tuesday. The fifth day should have been the earliest Tuesday of the following week. But they chose to make it on a SUNDAY. WHO DOES BUSINESS ON SUNDAY? Also the Agent represented both the BUYER and the Seller. I think that was a bit of Conflict of interest in itself. I have NEVER RECEIVED anything from the BANK stating that they are keeping my earnest money. Only signed forms from the Agent. I have to wonder if the agent kept my money and the bank knows nothing about it...SO ALWAYS BE VERY CAREFUL when signing realestate documents. And no matter what day it is, if you have to drive to your agents home, make sure you get the message across to them and get confirmation.
