Short sales are very complex and very often the time frames of the purchase agreement are not met by the seller's lender. They basically control the deal. Without reviewing the P/A agreement, which I can';t do for policy reasons, I can't say why the 28th is the required date or not. It's possible the delay because of the utility issue might automatically extend the time. You can ask the seller and their broker to confirm that your earnest money will be released after the 28th.
