They put $50000.00 in escrow sign some few contract (binding to the sale) and inspection on the two house his wife handled pretty much all the transaction with the bank. Every time Alan ask his wife what's goig on with the transaction his wife replied it take a few month for the transaction to go through, Alan had friends telling he sould hire a real estate attorney to find out whats is going, so he decided to do that, but he had to talk it over with his wife. His wife was skeptical about the whole ideal and told him that is not a good ideal she could lose her job over this. So Alan dont know what to do from here ?
