Sticking Around

The homeowner-seller had a copy of the canceled check showing payment of the real estate taxes and objected to the title closer’s repeated statement that his company would hold $10,000 in escrow until the payment showed up on the town’s database.

The seller was growing red in the face; the expression “boiling mad” completely fit his demeanor.  As my client and I chatted with the bank lawyer and tried to ignore the contretemps on the other side of the table, we heard the seller explode. “RELAX? YOU WANT ME TO RELAX? HOW ABOUT YOU HIT ME OVER THE HEAD WITH THE STICK YOU HAVE IN YOUR ASS, AND THEN I MIGHT RELAX!”

Shortly after this exchange, the title company decided not to hold escrow.
