Maren & I received some VERY frustrating news today.
We are not going to be able to close on our house on Thursday after all. It turns out that the house and property have never been surveyed until now. The current owners were not required to have one when they bought the house ten years ago. The original owners owned two lots, lots 22 & 23. The house sits on both. However, when they bought it, the paper work said "lot 22." So the original owners still own lot 23.
So they have to track down the original owners, have them sign off the paperwork to the current owners, and then we can close. We don't know when that will be, but more than likely won't be until next week.
But we still have to move out of our apartment on Wednesday morning.
Now, hopefully the original owners will simply sign over since it was understood when the house was sold that they were selling ALL of the property. But if they decide to get greedy and demand more money, things could get rough. And we could be out of a house. And there's not a lot of rental property in Marshall.
Meantime, I have to move our stuff over on Thursday. I don't know where its going to go.
