Stuff Happens - Don't End Up Temporarily Homeless in Corona del MarThere are so many inter-dependent activities involved in a closing, so it's not that unusual for there to be last minute delays that move a closing a few days farther out. Many times this is due to loan documents, as the lender wants to see all appraisal, survey, title and other documents first. If any of these are delayed, then the closing might be later than expected. Though it can't always be avoided, try to be sure that you don't arrive with your furniture on closing day with no place to live or money to pay the movers for van storage, because you can't move in for three days. Make sure that you have a definite occupancy date in writing in your purchase contract. It is also a good idea to buffer a few days at your old place, just in case. - Michael Parker, Corona del Mar real estate brokerNovember 26 2012 - Corona del Mar00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
