I accepted a buyer's offer for my home. The contract (Residential Purchase Agreement, California) has an appraisal contingency. The buyer's lending bank appraisal came in below offer price. I asked the realtor (who is representing both buyer and me) to submit a Notice to Buyer to Perform, which is necessary to cancel the contract.
The realtor ignored the request, and instead got the buyer to submit a Contingency Removal (CR) form.
Am I obligated to accept the CR, and thus finalize the contract?
