Ok so im selling my mom's house and have been in contract with a a realtor for 2 months. I suffer from anxiety and one day before closing they found that my brother owed 20,000 in child support and a lein was on the house. With it being his homestead,the attorney finally got it off. Well when I found out about the child support lein,I became nervous and called a place that buys houses fast,they came out and took pics and said they would buy it and to go back to their office so we could talk,so I did. I told these people several times I was in contract with someone else and they said that what I am signing is not a contract just an offer and if the other place couldn't find a soultion to the child support thing,they would buy and I had till the 8 of march 2016,yes they put the wrong year,to decide,not even an hour I called them and told them that I would not need their service,that my realtor came up with a solution,they called me two days later,at 8pm at night,sounded drunk and said I couldn't back out,that I signed a contract,well I pulled the paper that I signed out and at the top it saids real estate purchase contract,he had that covered when I was in his office. So I read it and the date he put on there was the closing date and it had 2016 not 2018. They call me every other day,at 8 or 9,they sound drunk and they are rude saying they will cloud the title,I had to call the cops and report them because they were parking across the street,I do have a case number. I looked on the county clerk records and they did put a cloud on the title,I'm supposed to close Tuesday and my question is ,can I get that off? Will they still by my house with that on there? What do I do? I now read everything before I sign and I don't trust anyone. I told these people that I am only selling my house to get an updated house for my disabled brother and they said they didn't care. Help

Let the title co. deal with it. If they can’t handle it get an attorney. It will go away, maybe not in a week, but don’t sweat it. In the future, don’t go out on your own line that of course.....there is generally never a rush to do something like this.
