Things Nobody Wants to Hear


The other day we got a phone call from one of our realtors. She informed us that after a long chat with the seller of our new home’s title company, they had discovered a bump in the road. More like an entire detour. A complete re-route that we could neither have expected nor could we do anything about. Like a detour that sends you down a back road, then provides less-than-obvious signage causing wasted time, gas money, and frustration. You get it. Derailed.

They informed us that in a bizarre sequence of life events, the seller DOES NOT ACTUALLY HAVE THE RIGHT TO SELL THE HOUSE AT ALL. BAM. So there it is.

Eight days before closing, we find ourselves with half of our apartment packed up in boxes, having already given notice, and having to start from the beginning in our home search. Lets just say that we are not thrilled. Hopefully we can get some of our money back from appraisals, inspections, etc. to help out with the (at least one) extra month of rent we will have to pay at the (very much increased) month-to-month rate.

And I had a lovely “our first home” graphic all worked up too! Boo. I guess I can still use it…



Everything happens for a reason, right?? Pray that we find what we are looking for before we waste any more time and money!

  1. That’s terrible sweetie!!! But you should be able to get some of your money back. But what exactly was wrong with the title search? Is it an adverse possession case?

    • Wish I knew what tha meant! 😉 Apparently it has something to do with the guy being ignorant of the fact that his ex-wife got half the house when they divorced, and she has since passed away. Her part went to her kids, who are each in different stages of unable to complete required paperwork in time. Apparently he did not check this situation out before he put the house up for sale. Some people.
