we went to closing this morning, all the paperwork was signed and notarized. There was an explosion in Richmond and they could not record the deed. I have a signed copy of the deed

the sellers are calling the authorities saying we need to be removed from the house we don't own it they haven't been paid

Thank you for the additional information. It does not sound as if the closing completed. The property is yours when the original deed is released from escrow for recording and the money is released to the seller.

Did you sign the HUD1? Did the money get released to the seller? Were you given the keys?Is the title company open?
