Today I closed on a property and am happy that I got it.
As a buyer, I did a wire transfer for the closing we had scheduled for the next day. The issue I had was for some reason my printer didn’t print out the final two lines of the agreement and I didn’t notice. The all important line with the total amount due from buyer was missing. The line that was printed above that had similar bold text, the numbers were similar but the decimal point makes a world of difference. In this case, more than 10k.
I caught that later in the day and called the closing law firm to confirm my math of the additional money I needed to send to complete the transaction. In this case, only it cost me another trip to the bank and an additional $30 wire transfer fee but didn’t hold up the closing. Always double check your figures and don’t get in a hurry at the bank.
Now that plot of land with all the ticks, red bugs and poison sumac is mine!
