I don't think I'll ever be able to title another post with this subject line so I might as well strike while the iron is hot.

The short story is my house has been up for sale for the last 6 weeks. On Monday I got an offer to buy with a closing date of September 15. Well that’s a bit of a problem as I'm not sure I can do an Axiom weekend just before I have to move.

Today however I was saved by an early (7:12am) morning phone call. We have reached an agreement on the price but they would like an earlier closing date of August 27th.

I said YES, it may only be a little more than 2 weeks away but that is more than enough time for me (he said optimistically)to get everything sorted.

The only problem, with apologies to JohnK, may be the lawyers but I'm sure they can speed things up for me.

In any case this means I get to meet you AND move on with my life, and that's a very good thing indeed.

Now I'd better book a room......

Lawyers are always THE problem laugh . Happy to hear you sold you're house, Wayne! I know someone who's struggling to sell theirs, and have seen others in the neighborhood for sale for a long time.

And we'll see you at Axiom!

Not always. THE problem during my divorce was not taking more of my lawyers advice.

More precisely, I got married to the wrong person, but yes that was the root cause.

Cam, you should also realize that if you expect to get the best service you should retain an attorney, rather than hire a "lawyer".
