Everything You Need To Know About Real Estate

Once a settlement date is set, can it be changed?

Handtruck Settlement it the last step in home buying – before the moving begins, that is! Sometimes called closing, settlement is where the seller receives the funds from the buyer and the buyer gets proof of ownership. While everyone does their best to meet the settlement date, it is important to remember that many things can crop up to delay the settlement.
For instance:
  • Credit problems

  • Problems with buyer's credit history that must be explained.
  • Paperwork delays

  • Unforeseen delays in processing lending paperwork.
  • Appraisal problems

  • Delays in property's appraisal.
  • Contingencies

  • Inspections and/or repairs that must be completed before settlement.
  • Unresolved liens
    Liens against the property that need to be resolved.
  • Personal Problems
    Personal problems (such as a death in the family) that lead to rescheduling.
Remember, delays in settlement do not necessarily mean the transaction is falling apart. Most transactions do eventually go to settlement. Many problems can be straightened out in a day or so. The key is flexibility.
