We were supposed to have settlement on our construction loan today.
(I really wish that sentence read “we had settlement on our construction loan today.”)
But, alas, it was postponed.
So, the property we own is what’s left of a former 40 acre dairy farm. The barn and the farmhouse were subdivided into their own parcels in 1976 and 1977 with the rest of the neighborhood. The only map of our property we were ever shown and have ever seen was the one from ‘77. Apparently, information on our property was either poorly (or not at all) recorded before or since then, and now we have to wait until we can put the pieces together.
We just found out about this last Friday, and needless to say, it didn’t get straightened out in time for us to close today.
Unfortunately, it looks like we’re cleaning up a mess 35 years in the making.
……we just hope it doesn’t take too long.
