THEN we need to figure out about the clean up crew, how long do we keep them there drying out the house, every day is costing us lots of money.
and i have no idea what to do if insurance doesn't cover this. i mean yes it is our agents fault... maybe? if she wasn't there when the door got left open and it was left open by the potential buyers agent.. do we go after them? or is it still in the end our agent who is responsible? she is trying to say that maybe the door doesn't close right, (which it does) but even if it didn't don't yo really pull the door closed and lock it if you are leaving. and she said maybe someone broke in... ok but they took nothing (nothing to take) and did no damage to the house except leave the door a jar. that doesn't even make since. i mean it is possible, but we have no proof that even happened because nothing is missing.
and i might have to spend another day at home fielding phone calls because no one seems to be able to get their stuff together and work in out when they call all meet up where ever it is they need to meet up. which means the kids will be pissed. we were planning on a day at the park yesterday and then i said ok we can go today, but now maybe not. dh is at work and can't leave. UGH!
ok done with the vent... off to make more phone calls.
So she has to go through the paperwork. Big whoop. Once she gets it to you, though, make copies and keep them in a folder somewhere safe. Keep everything! Better yet, keep the originals and put the copies in another folder for the lawyer. You did call one, I hope?
It is definitely someone else's fault and not yours-- y'all have not been occupying that house for how long now? And there haven't been any problems with the heat or the oil or the water until recently, and then WHAM, all at once. So it's definitely someone who was there in the last 2 weeks or so that was negligent. YES it's the realtor's fault or the potential buyer or their agent. And of course your agent is deflecting blame! Would you want that on your record? I wouldn't...she stands to lose her license, her livelihood, and a huge chunk of money if she's found to be at fault. Which, do NOT feel bad about that, MO3; if it's her fault, even by accident, she needs to buck up and claim responsibility.
But a lawyer, YES, you must must must investigate that.
M called me on his lunch break just to tell me he loves me (That's me, swooning )
