So for a couple of days now, I have consistently heard the 19th as being our closing day. Although, even with all of the talk they still can't actually CONFIRM that day until our file comes out of underwriting. The branch manager is visiting PA for meetings today where all of the underwriting occurs and she hopes to speak directly with the person working on our file in hopes of getting an idea of WHEN exactly that will happen. Once she can pinpoint when we get our final approval, she will be able to confirm for us if the 19th is even possible.
So today, Mike is cancelling his original leave request for the 15th and submitting a new one for Tuesday. It has to go through the special process again since it is the day AFTER a holiday. I hope it gets approved because I have no idea what were going to do if it doesn't!
The 19th is pretty much THE LAST possible day we can close before work and school EXPLODES for me. I will have a hard time finding free time to schedule a closing after that day.
Anyway, the branch manager plans to call me sometime today to give me another update.
