It is the buyer's house, the buyer gets a set of the keys on closing. Just my opinion. The buyer really can't enter the house anyway so it should not be a be matter of contention.

Contact a contractor or builder. The question is so vague. There are so many variables that need to be considered.

Hello Elaine
You should have it in 1-2 weeks on average in most counties in California.
If you don't see it then contact your escrow officer on the transaction or your realtor.
Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Please call me at 909-917-6176. I'm a licensed Realtor but also a licensed and "Certified" California Real Estate Appraiser. A bank won't invest it's hundreds of thousands of dollars without the advice of an appraiser, why would you do anything less? Asking the value of a property is a very complicated question to be answered. That is why appraisers must be licensed and cannot give a value unless there has been due diligence on the appraisers behalf. My clients receive the benefit of my knowledge as an appraiser and they can be comfortable with what they buy or sell homes for. ... more
