Unfortunately two days ago I was told I would not be closing on my home yesterday. I had to wait until the buyers turned one piece of paperwork they were missing and the closing wouldn’t be until next Wednesday.
The buyers turned in their paperwork under pressure and I received a call late this morning that the closing was scheduled for today. With that unexpected news I got an email with the Settlement Statement attached. That way I could read it before I showed up at the closing and wouldn’t be taken by surprise with undesirable charges.
I showed up first to the closing and got the signing of many papers underway before buyers arrived.
A new undertaking for me is to be a tenant instead of a homeowner. For a year I will undoubtedly let the apartment management take on the issues I use to be responsible for. I’ve come out from under that responsibility and now I’m a free bird.
