It does when I am counting and our contracts specify calendar days not business days. If it were business days or banking days whose would you follow. Not all banks in my area are open on the same days.

Depends if the contract specifies "days" - which by default is calendar days - or "business days" which would exclude any days Title & Escrow, and the county office for recording a closing are closed for business.

Desmond - If I were to guess, I would say calendar days is used most often. However, you need to verify that information yourself by reading the financing contingency, or checking with whoever wrote the financing contingency.

Call the finance company and ask them is it 35 calendar days or 35 business days. Once you have your answer memorialize it by sending whoever in the finance company answered your question an e-mail thanking them for telling you what ever they told you.

You need to read the wording in the financing contingency and relevant clauses in the remainder of the agreement.
