If you have a settlement this week in Hurricane affected areas here is some advice :
1. If the property is vacant go and check to make sure there is power .
2.Inspect the basement for water problems and sump pump failure
3. Please note that mortgage companies are requiring a reinspect to make sure there is no damage due to the hurricane.
4.Please prepare addendums and have them signed by all parties incase the settlement is postponed.5
5. Check your messages often. Return phone calls from mortgage companies,buyers and sellers and co-op agents.and make the home available for the mortgage company to come out and check.
When you read about events please check the year for the event as some people find information a year later and think it is for that year. . The posts remain online even after the event.
