All local Clerk's Offices and Banks will be closed on Monday, February 18th 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 14th, or, as a last resort, early on Friday the 15th. 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 of his loan documents and delivered his money to the closing attorney.
