This week our Wall of Jericho got a little taller.
I recently let you all know that we had run into some issues with our builder. He wasn’t able to finish the house within the contracted timeframe. We signed an extension for another week and a half. Unfortunately, before we reached the new contracted closing day we got bad news.
On June 3rd we got news that he would most likely not be done with the yard by June 8th. The issue with that is that our interest rate lock expired on June 9th. In order to keep our interest rate for another 30 days to sign a new extension, we would need to pay another $700. We didn’t want to do that.
The builder’s realtor offered to pay for it so we could extend. So, we signed another extension. This time for 30 days. This put our new closing date at July 8th. We had accepted that it would be a little while longer before we could move.
Are you ready for the next part? The builder didn’t sign the extension. And we weren’t told until our rate lock expired, the day after the second contracted closing day. And to be honest, we should have been told before then. But we weren’t.
We’re left the only one option. Legal action.
I have a meeting with an attorney on Monday morning. This is the beginning of what feels like another long road.
Please pray for us.
We know that our lives are now wrapped up in this house. It’s just wood and drywall. We know that our victory is in the Lord. And He has already won this battle. He knows what’s going to happen. It’s our job to have faith in Him and lay it at the foot of the cross.
