Please let us know when you’re ready for the preliminary appraisal with the list agent response of We should be ready by next Tuesday (Sept. 24th) to order the appraisal. We are completely done with wanting to buy the house with how we have been lied to by the list agent
Hopefully, if you are done with the deal, you can get your earnest/deposit money back and find another house to purchase. If your attorney is right and there is a breach, is the builder willing to compensate you for your out of pocket costs plus something for your time?

They want you to use their lender because they get $$$ on the back end of the deal.

It reads in the contract "Seller shall have no liabilities in construction caused by strikes, Acts of God or Nature, or if any change orders by the buyer. In the Event of such delays, the closing date may be extended by the delayed days not to exceed 30 days. Seller should notify buyer of any such delays". (We never received any notifications and they delayed the completion date by 8 days). What really upsets me was the day after closing date the list agent texted my Realtor and said "Good Morning. If buyers are still wanting the house, they need to get with our preferred lender". How low and unethical can you be.
Thanks for coming back to update us. Hiring an attorney was a smart move.

How much money did you give the builder?

The Builder is just trying to shove him to their "Preferred Lender"

Probably part of the same company.
