Hello, I'm new to the forum and have just started reading Dean's first book. I've been attempting to get my first deal for quite some time with limited success.
Currently, I have a property under contract that I plan to assign via an LLC. The issue is that the listing agent refuses to provide me the access code to the property which creates a dilemma. I have partnered up with an investor/agent who has a deep buyer's list and he finds this to be a problem as his buyer's want to go look at the property before purchasing it. The listing agent will meet me at the property to give me access, but I must schedule it with him. His schedule may conflict with the end buyer's schedule and vice versa.
Before I signed the contract, I added a clause that stated "Seller agrees to make the property available for inspection on 24 hours notice." The listing agent changed the wording to read "Seller agrees to make property available for inspection prior to closing" as the bank wouldn't accept my verbiage.
Has anyone encountered this problem with listing agents and banks? Those who have dealt with banks and successfully assigned their contract to an end buyer via an LLC, how did you circumvent this obstacle?
By the way, this property has been sitting on the market since fall of 2007 and has mold throughout the basement. The bank is being very difficult and uncooperative for something that I know they are eager to get rid of.
