Hello. I am going to be assisting you with your question today.
Please note: This is general information and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.
Typically, federal holidays (days in which banks are closed) are not considered business days.
However, you need to read your contract carefully to determine whether it states days or business days. Most real estate contracts state regular days (including holidays and weekends).
I hope I have answered your questions. If I have not, please feel free to ask any follow-up questions you may have. Also, please do not forget to rate my response at your earliest convenience.
Does it say "within 10 days" or "within 10 business days?"
If it does not specify business days, then holidays and weekends count.
10 days means literally 10 days including weekends and holidays.
