    Major disconnect here. How would the story have played out if Jim and Susan had a lawyer? How does a buyer just “back out” of the contract to purchase their house? Reply Report comment

    Definately a good idea for a real estate attorney. I use to work with a CPA and he insisted on it with all clients who were selling properties. So they loose there deposit on the new home and thats what happens when you sell your home contingent on selling your own home right. But don’t they get to keep the person who back out deposit also. It’s a good idea to sell then look for a home I think.
