HELP - Closing going on 4 months! - Posted by Kaitlyn
Posted by Kaitlyn on September 13, 2003 at 19:04:42:
My mom has contracted to sell her 4 family house in New York City, (June 2003). The buyers were supposed “investors” who signed the contract to buy.
Now its September and the bank still has not given us a closing date! We called our attorney who said we have the mortgage commitment - just no set closing date.
We DESPERATELY need the money (lots of bills, new rents due, plus mortgage due).
The house is worth $380K, my mom contracted to sell for $360K.
- Is there anything we can do to make them close soon???
- In the event the closing does not take place, what can we do to obtain immediate cash ($15K)?
My mom has good credit, but will now have a late mortgage payment because of this delay. Also, she does not have a job nor files taxes.
Thanks so much for your helpful suggestions.
