Closing delayed

Closing was supposed to happen today, but sadly some paperwork from another company didn't make it to the NVR office in time, so we have been delayed.  We have been assured we will close by Thursday (the end of the month) and I sure hope so.  We have almost everything packed and scheduled for this week.  There's nothing else holding up closing - just the underwriters, so fingers crossed.  I spoke to our PM about the Certificate of Occupancy and he says it is handled and he's never had a closing held up by that.  So that's one thing I'm not worried about anymore.

We went to see the house on Sunday and found that they had fixed some things, but not the door yet.  Or the backyard.  We have a backdoor neighbor's flower bed encroaching on our yard and it has to be dug up ASAP.

We also noticed some new things that we hadn't noticed before.  Stain on the risers on the steps (it looks like a sloppy job).  Drywall around the corners on the stairs looks terrible.  And the shorter railing on the stairs is crooked (not centered where it meets the wall).

I also think they put in way too much shelving in our bedroom closet, but that's not really their fault.

Hope it all comes together in time....


  1. I hope they are able to straighten everything out quickly for you guys!

  2. Sorry to hear that, hope they get their stuff together and get you in your new home :)
