Annette,

I would point it out to them in a nice way.  There is no ground lost by being kind to this agent.  These kind of gestures usually help the process along.  A

MIssed dates are non-performances in my area - not sure what "reading challnged" means but if the buyer is so, is the agent also?

I would call and tell them very nicely they are using non-business or holiday dates in the contract and suggest they amend. Or I would counter any offer with more appropriate dates and nicely explain why.

Annette Lawrence , Palm Harbor, FL 727-420-4041 In my area the contract specifies "time is of the essence". Missing contractual dates can result in non performance. It's time to call the agents broker.

If the agent can't even get a handle on a closing date, a call to the broker may be in order.  That's basic stuff.

Most of the date sensitive areas of our contracts are preceded with "on or before" and I have had associates intentionally input non-business days to ruffle the feathers. It can be a strange business for unwarranted reasons.

FYI - I prefer the calendar idea but only if it's one with you on it.
