Even after the home is recorded you now have a negotiated possession period that was already agreed upon in the Real Estate Purchase Contract. A lot can happen during this time frame.
When I have the buyer in this situation I am in constant contact with them to make sure once they are moving in that everything is there that they were expecting to be there. 99% of the time ... more
