Their lender, who shall remain nameless =b of a= couldn't handle the overwhelming task of making a follow-up call to verify employment, hence the closing has not yet happened. So who knows when they're going to close. Which means who knows when they'll actually be able to vacate the property?
Don't ask me what the hell we'll do. We have to be out of this house by the 31st. We could get all Move Out Because We Have A Lease and point legal fingers, but then we'd have to deal with a potentially pissed of landlord for 2 years. Not to mention it takes about 90 days to invoke tenancy laws, and we're still out of this house in two weeks.
This is not the fault of the people next door; they're scrambling to get the closing done, including turning to the builder for a potential new lender. It's not the fault of the lady who owns the house. It's not our fault. Yet we're the ones who could potentially get screwed if this goes to the last minute.
