So we're closing on the house tomorrow and I'm a bit nervous. I just got one of the agreement docs tonight from the lawyer and to be honest, I don't think much of the protection it offers me. To be honest, I'm less concerned about legal tangles with my own family and more concerned with missing some critical detail at the last minute. I think I should have received at least a draft of the agreement at least a couple days in advance, just in case I wanted someone to take a look at it for me.
At this point, unless I want to cause a major stink, delay the closing and create a mess for everyone in the name of protecting myself against the extremely unlikely, I'd better just sign off on everything. 'Tis a shame, though, because I feel like the bad guy raising the prospects of worst-case scenarios to my family and asking them to share in the expense of having the lawyer clean up little details and such.
I hope this all works out. Fingers crossed.
