Making Sure the Closing Happens
A contract had been signed. Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. received a call when, after finding “mouse droppings” during a visit to the apartment, the buyers would not close. Because Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C.’s client was a celebrity, Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. immediately cut off all contact with the real estate brokers to avoid any unwanted publicity and, within an hour, hired an exterminator to head to the multi-million dollar Fifth Avenue premises. Not only did the exterminator not find any sign of rodents, but there was not even a mouse dropping to be seen; the exterminator issued a report that the apartment was rodent-free. This report was sent to the buyers’ attorney immediately and within days the closing was back on.
A month later, the closing was off again. Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. received a call from the buyers’ counsel who asked for his client’s deposit back. Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. told him its client was ready to litigate to the end of time before he would give back any money (which was true). After he spoke with his client, the closing was back on again.
Now Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. was worried about the buyer throwing the board interview by acting undesirable, but the interview went fine. Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. called a time of the essence closing and had a stenographer and videographer at the closing. The apartment closed, and Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. was off to our next case.
Adam Leitman Bailey represented the seller in the potential litigation and Andrew Jorges attended the closing.
