Caution, Road Blocks Ahead
UGhhh, why does buying and selling a house always have to be so stressfull!! We are scheduled to close on the apt building on Aug 3rd but apparently that may not be happening which means we will not be closing on the lake house on the 8th. So, for those of you who dont know, the apt building we own has had 3 apt in it for like 25 years and a TON of different owners meaning it has been sold several times. All of the sudden though the county is saying that it isnt zoned to be a multi family home it is still zoned to be a single family residence. Therefor the people buying it cannot get their financing. Hence, we cant sell it without it being Re zoned which takes 50 bucks, some paperwork and a signature but that signature takes almost 2 months to aquire. The county says that it could have been zoned correctly at one time but no one recorded it. So, my question is why is this OUR problem???? Why do we have to deal with something they have let go for 25 years????? Our realtor gave us a lawyer to contact who may be able to clear this up, for a big wad of cash, of course. He supposeldly is working on it but wont return our phone calls. I am sure he is working REALLY hard for us! Wow! I sound Really negative. I know God has a plan and I am trusting Him but its still frustrating and I need to vent or I will explode!
