Surprise…. surprise…

We didn’t close yesterday, shocking I know. We were advised at the closing table that documentation was missing from one of the co-signers and then it turned into a mad dash to get everyone on the phone.  We had to make sure paperwork was notarized, and they wanted a copy faxed to them so we could attempt to close the same afternoon, however the faxes never went through so in the process of that not working the co-signer ran to the FedEx store to have the paperwork overnighted down.  They wanted the fax just to start the process, but they required the physical copy because of the seal.

So, co-signer paid the $30 to have it delivered before noon 3/13.  Due to the wind-storms that flew through the north east last night, the plane didn’t take off until after Midnight and was some-how re-routed from New York down to Memphis, TN.  The document (per the tracking info) was then DRIVEN to Baltimore, MD and has been sitting there ever since. We got in touch with a rep at FedEx and they noted that due to the winds it was delayed last night, and unfortunately due to the winds today it’s delayed until tomorrow.  The rep said that it would be there by Noon on 12/14, lets just hope that’s the case.

So everyone is still all over the place, thankfully the owner/realtor gave us until Monday to get this all finalized (per her addendum to the contract). They sellers already signed over what they could, at this point they’re just waiting on the check, and due to their scheduling conflicts this week they’ve also given power of attorney to the lawyer so that she can represent them for this signing when we actually can finalize everything.

Utility wise, everything is on in our names but they still hold the note on the house until the check is handed over to them. I’m hoping nothing happens at the house between now and signing, but we should be ok.  Sean and I are both at the end of our ropes, we’re sick of this entire process and just want it to end.  Hopefully we’ll have everything settled by tomorrow.  I just want the keys, I just want to get in there and clean the place up and start our lives.

It’s just way too damn frustrating to deal with anymore.

  • Buying a house can be such a pain, especially if there’s any “minor” delay, because it almost always turns into a production to figure out. When we bought our house, it was a foreclosure that, thank goodness, had already been emptied out and fixed up (fresh paint and cheap carpeting, but hey, I’m all for fresh & clean & new). When my grandparents bought their house near my mom’s, they were held up for three MONTHS because of paperwork issues, and then roof repairs. :/

    I hope you guys are settled in now! And, per your tweet, I hope that snaking the ethernet cable through your house isn’t a huge PITA. My husband very kindly did the snaking for the kids’ bedrooms and our bedroom, so we only use the wifi with our laptops, tablets, and phones. Everything else is hard-wired into the router for optimal connectivity. 😀
