Customer Question
Last September, I purchased a...
Last September, I purchased a home in DR Horton’s Orchid Grove development in Pompano Beach. It was supposed to be delivered in March, 2015. Due to delays in permitting and such the home is finally near completion and they want to schedule a walk through and closing before the end of June. During this delay information was almost nil regarding the completion of the home, despite numerous request for information. Now there is a rush to close without regard to my busy schedule during June (college graduation, business convention, birthdays, family reunion, medical procedures) which were commitments long before the closing date was set. No specific date has been set, but the powers that be insist it will be closed before the end of June, even though it is not a convenient time for me. Am I stuck?
