A little ray of sunshine on this Saturday morning coming into my kitchen keeps me focused on hope! Nature’s arrangement at my nook table credit broker, Dina Harvey Jardine – thank you! Ok, let’s sweep this week…
What have I noticed? All parts of the Closing process is being tested in bandwidth. I’m seeing delayed Closings – at no fault of Buyer or Seller. No finger pointing here; only a heads up. Ps, Friday Closings never ideal – especially now. Give yourself and your clients the gift of time and of setting expectations – being there could be delays simply based on high volumes of transactions. Idea: as taken from WRE Form 64, item #6 – consider this:
Automatic Extension of Closing Date. If, through no fault of the party whose performance is delayed, the Agreement cannot close by the Closing Date due to circumstances outside of the control of such party, then the Closing Date shall be automatically extended for up to ____ days (5 if left blank) (the “Extension Period”). Closing shall occur as soon as reasonably possible within the Extension Period.
