As far as I know, the closing is still on.
On Friday, I got a call from Tony, Mortgage Fellow while waiting to watch the Celtics get destroyed in person. I told him I would give him a call back.
He told me that for the closing to happen, three things will have to happen, in the scant few days left before closing:
1. Clean the back yard. Have city inspector inspect.
2. Remove the kitchen from the back unit. Have cit inspector inspect.
3. Pay $75 to the city. Have city cash check.
About halfway through his recitation, I realized that these all have something to do with the violations that are hanging over the property. The violations which I signed off on long ago.
I let him know that I had already signed a fun form releasing these violations to me once the property is mine. He asked me to send him the form, so I got in touch with City Hall and am awaiting their reply.
I really hope that the form I signed will make all of these things go away (until after closing), or else I am hoping to have a terrible Tuesday evening cleaning a yard and removing a kitchen.
