(President’s Day—February 21, 2011):
All local Clerk’s Offices and Banks will be closed on Monday, February 21, 2011 for President’s Day. In addition, many other offices (attorneys, surveyors and title companies) will also be closed for this National Holiday.
For closings, this means that if you have to record the deed before the buyer can occupy, try to schedule the closing for Thursday, February 17, or as a last resort early on Friday, February 18. If the deed is not recorded by Friday afternoon, the buyer may have to wait until Tuesday to occupy.
Possible Alternative Strategy: Arrange for the Buyer to get his keys once the Buyer has signed all his loan documents and delivered his money to the closing attorney.
