“Buyer has 10 days to complete inspections, this offer is contingent upon satisfactory inspection of camper”. After we accepted the offer, the buyer did look at the camper and says she doesn’t “like” it and cancelled the professional inspection. She has asked us to sign a release. We... Read more »
