Buh buh, huh?
Do these people not read?
Ah, well. If you're no longer angry, I am not angry.
Confused by stupidity, but not angry.
But we LOVE the Mr. Crankypants icon.
I like it so much I'm in danger of making you cranky on purpose just to see it.
I know y'all do, which is why sometimes I use it even when I'm not nearly as crabblepuss at it would indicate. ;)
Hehe. Not only are you handy at patching Gaping Drywall Holes of -9 Saving Throw on House Closing... you're also clever.
Last time we moved, the agent was in a car accident and took our house off the market for six weeks, without mentioning anything to us. "We're not getting any interest at all. We are so fucked."
The agent was my brother-in-law's mom. Apparently the trauma of the crash made her forget our phone number.
At least they'll accept you fixing the problems. Imagine the delays if you had to go through SOMEONE ELSE to fix them. Bleh.
Ah, but by fixing them yourself, you've also created the uber revenge if the closing cannot happen. It's called "the mechanics lien." You can lien the home for the value of the work you did, which makes it entirely unmarketable.
This just adds another nail on the "I really don't ever want to buy a house" coffin I've been carting around for many years.
Though...if I may...feel free to use that icon all you want. It's one of my faves.
"Ah, well. If you're no longer angry, I am not angry."
After our various house adventures and a failed closing (do NOT get me started on TDBank) this stuff shouldn't surprise me anymore. And yet...
Fingers crossed that all goes well with closing 2.0.
Ah, the joys of buying a home. May next week go smoothly.
Go you for grabbing the bull by the horns and fixing the damn problem!

Go go Gadget Dr. T! At least you've done everything possible to make it happen. The rest? Am sending good thoughts out that it proceeds smoothly.
If you need help sometime before next weekend, let me know.
That was me above, forgot to log in.. d'oh!
Anyway, offer of help still open!

Since I currently have no voice...

Try this mantra: "When the house is ours they will all go away, when the house is ours they will all go away, when the house is ours they will all go away."
"They", of course, being defined however you wish. :)
Yeah, FHA loans are painfully screwy. We went through similar roller coasters with our recent house purchase. One day, it's all "it's doubtful you'll be able to get the loan" and the next it's all sunshine and roses. I'm glad you guys got it worked out.
This week/next week, as far as helping you guys that still pretty much works for me, as long as I don't have to work I don't have any problems helping you move the Things Which Are Not Huge. :)
Our code review process requires an approval before you can commit. Reviewers can give comments and no approval, meaning you have to fix things and ask for approval again. Or they can give comments and approval, on the assumption that you'll fix the minor problems and not have to bother them again.
Holes in drywall seems like the second category.
I just think it's awesome that you could apply your handy Work Week knowledge. Teps are Tops!
How many times did you spackle the ceiling in 42? Practice makes perfect.
