Yes, $50,000.  The soon to be ex wife would not sign off on the divorce in time.

No.  I keep track of dates and let them know.  I explain if they cancel once we are past the BINSR wihtout just cause (Ie loan contingency, etc) they will most likely lose said EM.

I remember years ago, had a buyer that had been "pre-approved" by her own lender, and two days before the appraisal deadline found out the lender was not approved to do FHA loans.   Seller kept their EM.

Yes, but they were not my buyer. It's the fee for requiring the seller to take the home off the market and creating all the associated devaluation issues.
