Squeezed at Both Ends

How do I protect client when a buyer’s attorney wants to shorten the seller’s proposed closing date from October 15 to October 1, while also extending the mortgage contingency period from September 1 to September 15?

In other words, my client has to wait until September 15th to see if she has a firm deal (absent any requests for extensions), then has to move out of the house within a few weeks after that.

I really can’t do it when my client wants to buy a new house and piggyback the two deals, especially when she is financing her purchase as well.

Yet this is the task set before me.

****

Have a great weekend!

Imagine the life of a criminal defense attorney, who doesn't want to know if a client did commit a crime, but finds out the truth anyway. And since the truth is contrary to the job required, the jockeying and positioning and avoiding and manipulating can be mentally overwhelming. Yet we all do the jobs we are paid to do. Lawyering beats laundering shirts in the back of a drycleaning store in August or working in a store freezer in January, I tell ya!

I don't think I have the inner workings to be a criminal defense attorney, but I am grateful for colleagues who do possess the right skills.
