Well Hooray about the house….and boo to the having to wait for the meters to be installed……I wonder if they took them out because they feared squators or theft….

hhmmm.. I’ve never heard of removing the meters, but it could be possible. 

My hubby and I bought our home this past January…. and there were a LOT of hold ups, including issues with the sellers bank, realtors messing up paperwork, our closing date even changed 3 times….  maybe even 4 times.  My point is – hang on girl!  You may be in for a bumpy ride!!

Ughhhhhh there is so much red tape! I hate the hurry up and wait situation that we have been in since February! We had our home inspection and that was fine. Then the bank appraisal, where they actually measure the home. We found out that there was over 350 square feet missing from the original listed square footage. Also, the deck didn’t pass the appraisal.

After all this we decided to still purchase the house, but asked the owners to repair the deck. We are now waiting for the underwriters to finish the paperwork and hopefully we will get a closing date next week!

I haven’t heard about meters being shutoff, but I have learned throughout this whole process that anything is possible!

Be patient and keep your cool. Good luck!!!
