Appraisal comes in 9k below contract. All good, we renegotiate without too big of a hit.
Home inspector shows up randomly 1 day after inspection contingency expires. We weren’t informed of the inspection. My wife asked they come back in an hour. They reschedule for a week later.
Buyer and kids show up at rescheduled home inspection. Kids are left to run wild around the house. They got into my son’s gumball machine with their bare hands. Ransacked a few toys. Buyer left a vape on the floor my 6 yo discovered. Contacted our agent and she said document and let it go til after closing on 6/15.
On 6/11 we were told closing would happen on time and were given storage access to our new home. We went ahead and moved most things so our buyers could move in on closing day per contract.
Later on 6/11, buyers lender requested a name change on the contract to match all other buyers documents. We were told closing wouldn’t happen the 15th but later that week. We gave a contract extension to the 21st.
The 16th rolls around and it becomes clear we won’t be closing this week. Our agent and buyers agent contact LO’s boss and he said he’s going into the file and promises closing by the beginning of the week of 21st.
The morning of 6/18 we get a voicemail from buyers LO stating and promising closing beginning of the week. The delay has been a deposited gift in buyers account and all documentation had just been received. We fully expect CD that day. I asked my agent to check in by end of the work day.
Suddenly Crickets. Nothing from anyone. No replies from our agent. No contact from lender. It’s now obvious closing will be end of next week at the earliest.
I told my agent that it’s time to stop playing nice and demanded a reassurance letter from lender and the buyer needs to give us something to extend again. Crickets. No response.
Now I’m super stressed and it’s starting to impact my day to day life.
What’s the best way to handle this?
