(President’s Day—February 20, 2012):
All local Clerk’s Offices and Banks will be closed on Monday, February 20, 2012 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 the deed needs to be recorded before the buyer can occupy, try to schedule the closing for Thursday, February 16, or as a last resort early on Friday, February 17. 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.
PS—Remember for Downtown Charlottesville, that the Huguely Murder Trial is going on for the next two weeks. Accordingly, parking and access to the Courts and Clerk’s Offices will sometimes be complicated.
