Closing ... oops .. not closing

Ok .. Today was supposed to be our closing day.

One of the things that has irked me all along this process is the 'prying out' information out of the mortgage company. Well, we were scheduled for closing today. Yesterday, My RE agent finally got hold of the new guy taking care of the mortgage (old guy is on vacation.)

One of the things the appraisal turned up was a leaking drain pipe in the basement. We knew about it. The home inspection revealed it. It was on the sheet of things to be fixed by the seller. It was agreed on. I told the mortgage guy this and, by his instruction, faxed him a copy of the agreement to fix it. Yesterday, my RE agent was told that we needed a statement where the pipe was fixed. WHAT ???? That information was never disclosed to us. The underwriters cannot proceed until that is done.

That is being fixed this weekend. Our closing should be done by next Friday. That is the weekend before the week that students return to school in Clark County. It will make taking off to move and settle in that much harder.

Oh well. Life goes on.
