Impact of Structural Issues on Home Loan Closing [Video]

This week our hosts, Jim Cardinal and Alexis Meeks, discuss the impact of structural issues on the home loan closing process.

Most home buyers are aware that repair costs for a structural issue must exceed $1,500 in order for a structural issue to impact the home loan closing. However, often there will be an agreement between the seller and buyer in the form of a credit when structural issues do exist.

This credit can be addressed many different ways, and you always want to have an attorney involved in situations such as these.

As Jim describes in the recent transaction he had, the credit was applied through a reduction in the home loan closing costs…

…but I’ll let Jim and Alexis provide you with the detail in this short video:
