Sacramento, CA asked in Contracts for California

Q: Do I have to sign escrow papers to sell my prop? Terms diff than I thought when I accepted offer.

I didn't read fine print in offer. now Don't trust my realtor. Not transparent. Supp to be "As is". not suppose to clean prop but requiring me now. Not suppose to include mineral rights but now realtor won't reserve for me, not suppose to have contingencies but now many and many disclosures. I accepted low price to not have to do all this and without including seperate mineral rights deed. Realtor won't tell me what they want to do with the property it who they are. didn't know my realtor was offering it to other realtors at 2.5 % rather than 3% do I'm not sure I got proper marketing or best price. Do I have to sell now that I completed disclosure but suddenly asking for more disclosure.

A: if the escrow paperwork matches the offer and other pre-escrow paperwork, than you are bound by anything you have already signed. you may have to hire a lawyer to review all the paperwork for further analysis.
