Seller accepted offer, inspection is set for Thursday morning. Assuming that and appraisal are ok and underwriting is satisfied, it means I'll become a homeowner. closing is scheduled for 9/5.
Get this - I let this apartment know. They were sure to remind me that I owe them rent through Oct 31st, as if I were not aware of that, But they mentioned that if I leave early and they can rent it, they'll "reimburse" me for the rent for the time it's rented to someone else, minus whatever time they take to "renovate" it whatever that means.
I don't trust them, not a bit, after all it's these people who tried to convince me I should live with my patio door lock not working. So I just responded since I have to pay for it through Oct 31st then I want it through Oct 31st - you can come in on 11/1 and it's all yours at that point.
Seriously, I'm going to have to pay for it anyway and I don't trust them, they'd love nothing better than to get double rent on it telling me they are still "renovating" or whatever. Screw that. Besides that gives me a LARGE window to move. So I'll be gone before the end of the month but that by no means says I'm down with them coming in here before 11/1. It's legally mine through 10/31 and I have to pay for that, so I want it. May sound petty but you know what, they aren't going to cut me any slack on the rent so why should I let them get double rent? Fair is fair.
