Getting an agreement for thousands of dollars in writing = going judge judy on someone. Got it.

Please advise how this works.
1. Is it realistic, has anybody done this before?
2. Is there any time line to produce the broker letter as we have already signed the contract and builder can start building anytime in 2 weeks.

Many Thanks!!
Assuming he does pay, make sure the "rebate" goes on the HUD. You should not be taxed on this. Ask him if he plans to send you a 1099. If his answer is yes, get an accountant's advice. It will save you thousands of dollars..
