REALTOR® Rundown 11/20

QUESTION: Closing is two weeks away, and my buyer needs to sell their existing home in order to obtain a loan and close. Today, we received notice that the buyer of my client’s home is terminating. My client is freaking out and demanding that I do not tell the seller about the termination. My buyer is also debating whether to inform the seller next week that if my client does not receive a refund of their Due Diligence Fee, they will delay terminating the current transaction all the way through the grace period in the contract. What do I do?
