Closed? Or Not Closed? *Rant*

February 27th, 2016 at 07:38 am

I'm glad I read Keeping It Frugal's post before I wrote this, so she knows she's not alone!

I'm selling my dad's house. We were supposed to close 2 weeks ago, then last week, then Wednesday, then Friday at 11:00. I gave limited power of attorney to my lawyer so that I didn't need to attend the closing. At 12:30, I hadn't heard anything, so I sent an email to lawyer and realtor asking if we closed. Lawyer responded that it was pushed back to Friday afternoon, and he would let me know when it was complete.

Needless to say, I didn't hear from him after that. I emailed both of them again this morning to ask if the closing happened, and still no word. Grrrr. In addition to the peace of mind of just knowing it's done, I need to cancel the insurance, turn off the utilities, etc. and would like to get all of that taken care of.

It is *SO* frustrating when people don't get back to you timely with simple answers. I don't want to talk to anyone; email is fine, and I don't really care if it is pushed back again, I just want to know one way or the other. I'm really annoyed.

On the financial front, I'm wrapping up my month. I went over on our "eating out" category, but under in groceries, so that should be a wash. I know next month will require a little creativity too, so I'll prepare for that.

I did receive the check from Replacements.com, and had some leftover allowance from last week, so that will add to my snowflake total. The goal today is to continue my decluttering. I'm making a lot of progress, but there's so much to go through that I have plenty left!

    I would sure want to know! I hope you hear one way or the other soon.

    Found out today that it did close! So relieved it's over, but a little melancholy too. I grew up in that house, and visited my mom and dad regularly since I became an "adult". I can't believe that I can't just walk in the door anymore.
