My lawyer called. The day before completion on the house sale, never a good sign. Turns out the bank wont release the funds to the buyer because their parents, who were co-signing the mortgage, never signed the paperwork. And now they’re in Africa.
Why do lawyers and bankers always wait to the last minute to do anything? We made the deal 10 weeks ago and I’ve been calling my lawyer to find out why it is taking so long to do the paperwork. Now it is the day before completion and the banks haven’t received the documents they need. There is some technical difficulty receiving a fax from Africa.
Do they not have fax machines in Africa?
Do they not have email in Africa?
What about phones, can someone phone them? I really don’t care that it is the middle of the night there.
Do they have to wait until the last day to find this out?
I was hoping to write a post about the first day of my new life and how it was all went so smoothly and we popped the champagne bottle at our first RV park. Instead I’m writing about whether I should scream or cry. I really hope that tomorrow I can write about popping the champagne bottle and toasting fax machines.
