OK, as everyone guessed from my 'livid' post, yes, the closing was postponed *again*. It was supposed to be today, but now it looks like it *may* be Friday. I say *may* because as of this afternoon there were still issues with paperwork not being faxed yet, but promised to be, etc. My realtor is pissed off. My attorney is so pissed off he was swearing on the phone with me. I'm just fucking beyond pissed off. The seller keeps claiming he wants to close, he wants his money, any time. The problem appears to be that his attorney is a total ass clown. But I'm also starting to suspect that maybe he is trying to sink the deal because he thinks he can get more the the house or something. But, as I've said before, never attribute to malice that which you can attribute to incompetence.

Oh course, I talked to my dad about this today earlier in the events. If he is trying to sink the deal, we're going to fuck him. We will file a lawsuit against him and tie the house up. Basically if we don't close Friday we intend to sue. I will then start looking for another house. Some of you (like z_gryphon) know my dad. My dad does not tolerate bullshit, especially in business. He said we'll just buy two houses if we need to, and resell one when things are sorted out. But he isn't going to let this guy off the hook if that's what he's trying. I don't have the funds to do that kind of thing, but it is what I'd do too - and he does have the funds. So if he jerks me around again, we're going to jerk back - harder. I could just walk away from it and look for another place, even though i really like this house, but then if that's what he wants, he wins, and I'd rather not give him that after this bullshit. Fucker won't even drop the price to compensate me for having to rent my apartment longer - and I'm probably going to have to extend into next month at this point. I don't see how I can get everything I need done before I can move in done in a week.

Anyway, I was so goddamn pissed off today, still am, that I couldn't deal with anyone. I was eating lunch at 99 when both my realtor and attorney called to talk about this more, and I got so fucking pissed off I couldn't finish my lunch. My gut just balled up and I lost my appetite, and had to leave before I decided to rip shit off the walls for fun. I also haven't been sleeping well since the end of last week, partly due to being tense over this, and I couldn't go to the office wanting to kill, so i came home. I laid down to try to calm myself, and ended up passing out on my bed fully clothed, boots and all. I was out for a while. I've been up for a little while, and feel a bit better, but I'm just going to crash for the night. Just writing this has me tensing up again from thinking about it, and if I can crash I may be able to sleep through the night and get back onto a day schedule. There are more details and I may post them later under a friends-locked post, but right now I just need to chill and not talk about it too much or I'll go postal.

A) Cute Cat

B) Ditto

C) "Basically if we don't close Friday we intend to sue" What the fuck do you mean by "Intend"?

Babe ... do me a favor ... think about this house, do you think you could live in this place and have it feel like home after all of this? Really think about that for me ... no, for YOU and then have a talk with your soul over it.

The house is nice, but after this - can it feel like a home to you?

I'm glad that your dad is giving you advice and being helpful. That's terrific. But I'm sorry this whole thing is so screwed up.

Sometimes it's better to let it go, but you should be compensated for any losses you suffer due to his bullshit (lawyers fees, extra paperwork with mortgage companies, etc.). I'm not sure what real estate law is in Massachusetts (Mom's an agent in NJ), but he signed a P&S agreement therefore you have a contract he needs to fulfill. Contract law is pretty specific. He can't renege on the contract because he got a better offer or thinks he can. If you're not comfortable with the house after all this, just don't fully unpack and buy another one. You might have to pay capital gains, but yeesh.

You mentioned that he's the kind of guy that does the buy, fix and sell thing. If that's the case, then his attourney has to know how things work.

I'd start a suit now, just for the extra costs that you've incurred since he's failed to meet his end of the contract repeatedly. You got 1, probably 2, months rent as well as other costs.

This guy needs to be smacked, and if you can't smack him as hard as he deserves, at least he'll get kicked in the ass and you can prevent him from pulling shit like this on someone unsuspecting.

Oh! And, uh....I volunteer to "guard" one of the houses in exchange for being forced to live there.

Indeed, I feel a certain great, dark satisfaction at the thought of the vast and terrible power of the ZonerDad being harnessed for good. I must now go and listen to Akira Ifukube's Gojira theme.
