    Ryan and I are supposed to make settlement on our house on 10/31. Our house is new construction and part of the deal was that the builder would put a deck on our house. The builder has known about this deck for over a month. We did our walk-through yesterday and the wood was just delivered. The deck was not even started! GRRR. Then we get an email from our realtor saying that settlement might be moved because the deck was not finished. They said that weather depending, we might have to push settlement back.
    I called her and told her and told her that this was unexceptable. We made plans to have people down to help us( from out of town), the utilities get transferred to our name on 10/31, we rented a uhaul, and we rearranged our work schedules. The biggest problem is that our mortgage rate goes up on 11/5. She said that maybe she could call the builder and tell him that we were not happy. I said that is a good idea.
    We went out to dinner, got home and there was an email from the mortgage guy saying he was sorry but it was not his rule, it was the rule of mortgage companies everywhere. Since the deck is part of the deal, the deck needs to be done before they can settle. we understand that, then we read to the bottom of the email where she wrote to him saying we are not happy. WHY did she tell the mortgage guy this? Shouldn't she be calling the builder? Do you think we should call the builder ourselves? If this goes past the fifth, we could stand to lose substantial money. We are so frustrated right now, i could just scream!!! any advice would be appreciated! TIA!

      I would call the builder yourself. Threaton to walk out on the deal if they don't get the deck done by 10/31. I don't know how long it takes to build a deck but if they told you it would be done by 10/31 they should still be able to get it done by then even if it means they rearrange their schedules.

        I agree go straight to the builder, cut out the middleman, this way at least you have some control. Get on their case all the time until they think i need to get this done that bitch is doing my head in lol

          I agree and think you or hubby should call the realtor yourself. The RE agent doesn't have as much at stake as the two of you so he/she will not be as clear about how important it is that the deck be done on time. They should be able to complete it on time if you give them a little push. Good luck!
