There is just so much since last post. I'll probably forget most of it. Anyway:

As Ninsi mentioned, the closing did not go as planned on Friday. We did everything right. From day one of the house buying process, before we even talked to a mortgage broker, we did everything we were supposed to do, and did it on time. But, on the day of closing, some woman at National City simply did not transfer the money. Ninsi and I sat in the back of the title company waiting for the sellers to finish signing their papers so that we could get the keys and go to our new home. Instead, the agent said there was no money until Monday morning, and so we couldn't have the keys. If the sellers had done their closing earlier, there would have been time to fix it. But they did it at 4:30 on Friday, so by the time the problem was found, it was after 5 pm, the Fed was closed, and it was impossible to wire the money. It has been several years since I was as pissed off as I was Friday afternon.

What could we do? Nothing.
We had cleaners scheduled for Saturday morning, cable install and furniture delivery that afternoon. Rescheduling all of that was going to be a real pain in the ass. The sellers could have allowed access to the house for these things, or even let us in and we would pay rent to them for three days, but they refused, and just left the title company.

Needless to say, Ninsi and I did reschedule everything for Monday, and we both took the extra day off work, and hired movers to move all our stuff. Since all the people that would have helped us move on Saturday have to work on Monday.

When I picked up the keys Monday morning, I talked to the title agent again for a couple minutes. She said that the woman at the mortgage company that failed to fund the money had no excuse. She simply did not do it. Just did not do it. Bitch.
That's one. More later as I have time.

Hmm, I wonder if filing an official complaint with the mortgage company would do any good...


They suck. Happy birthday.
