My head is spinning... absolutely spinning. My husband and I put our intial offer in on a house in late July, went back and forth and finally settled on a contract in early September. The sellers are divorcing and they are having problems working together (my understanding is that the husband is dragging out everything to punish the wife for leaving him). Submitted the loan application the morning after the contract was signed by both parties, September 7th. Went through the bank's hoops, they had a backlog and we were finally approved last Monday. We were to close as early as today, heard nothing from their lawyer. Our lawyer pushed their lawyer for an answer, it turns out the husband has not signed the paperwork and is now living out of town. Called our agent who has informed their agent that our rate lock expires after Friday and we will walk away from the deal and their relationship problems. I'm half packed for a move that most likely won't happen. My house is a wreck because of this and I have nothing prepared for Christmas. I am angry and very frustrated with this man for causing problems in my family's life (he pulled the same stuff over the summer). I could just cry. And, even worse, I found out this evening that my favorite cousin's chrohn's may be out of remission. She needs some very expensive testing of which her current insurance company is requiring a prior authorization. Her insurance runs out 12/21 and she will not be eligible for coverage from her new insurance company until 2/1. And her husband is going out of town for 3 weeks for mandatory job training for his new job. She's 3 states away and has no help.
