I am due to close on a new home this month. The problem is the builder will not release a date to our attorney despite the fact that they sent us a letter advising us of closing.

How do these builders work? It seems they should know how close they are to finishing a home. Currently, the rug, appliances and hardwood floor is to be installed. It is a small house being build in a large development.

Any advice would be appreciated.

It is so frustrating. There are about twenty homeowners waiting to close. I guess everyone must be calling. I think staying on good terms is hard to do at this point but will try. Since it is a large developer, I am assuming money is not an issue with them. A small builder might be more likely to finish.

The attorney called the closing office and the person is out sick and apparently she is the only one who handles this. I called the sales office and got the patient. I asked a simple the house finished and she did not or could not find out. I do not live nearby so it is b=not easy to check. I was told that some builders do not even like you to go on the person got a letter from the builder that the should not go near the property (not my development..another builder).

I thought buying a new house would be easier.
