From the Forum: Should a Buyer Insist on a Letter of No Objection?

Photo by Susan De Vries


    The house is in contract but the buyer’s attorney is insisting on obtaining a letter of no objection from the seller. The two-family house doesn’t have a certificate of occupancy but the attorney did some digging and found that it was assessed as a single family in the 1930s. The seller is not willing to provide the letter of no objections. Is this issue really worth jeopardizing the deal?
