Well we’re rolling into December and still no deed. But for the last month, the delay has been on our part, not City Hall’s. We were waiting on the property survey (now completed) and the title search (pending). What was supposed to be a two week affair has turned into four, partly because of the Thanksgiving holiday and partly because the title search has been a “tough one” (so say the professionals). I cannot say I am surprised about that, given the age of the house and its location in a part of town that has seen much change over the years. Hoping for early this coming week on the finished title search, and then we should be able to set a closing date quickly and get this thing done. Excelsior.
*Edit (12/8/2012): I should add that the cost of the property survey was $400. The survey company was Millard, MacKay and Delles Land Surveyors, LLP. Their office is at 150 Aero Dr. in Buffalo and their number is (716) 631-5140.
