Settlement statement was incorrect?
I recently sold my townhouse and used the proceeds to purchase a new home. Two weeks after closing, I was contacted by my settlement agent who indicated that there was a $ 1000 error in the closing documents (They apparently applied a $ 1k reduction in realtor’s commission twice). They’re demanding payment of the $ 1000 and withholding my realtor’s commission until I make payment (which means that I’m receiving pressure from him also).
Am I responsible for their mistake at closing (two weeks after settlement seems a bit late)? Is there anything to protect me from them coming back and telling me that something else was incorrect on the HUD-1?
