Escrow Refund On Its Way

July 17th, 2012 at 06:23 pm

I emailed Wells Fargo's customer service yesterday about my escrow account, asking for an analysis. I received a reply today that there is $854.09 too much in there and I will be receiving a check in a week or two. When that comes, I will go ahead and send it on to my Chase Freedom Visa. So it looks like no further balance transfer checks nor dips into CurveBall will be necessary. Yay! Now I have to tackle that Citi MC.

I did my secret shop this morning, and have another one scheduled tonight. The one tonight pays $10 plus reimburses me if I have to buy the product. (I may not need to, that is the point of this particular shop. They want to know if the store is selling popular items before the actual release date.)

My garage door has decided to stop opening. I suspect it needs a new spring. I have scheduled a repair person for Friday afternoon.

I have a situation in my hall bathroom. Someone installed the tub/shower combo incorrectly, and water was leaking into the wall. The gap has now been sealed, but I am suspicious about what may be lurking in the wall. I am going to have someone who knows what they are doing come and take a look. I hope there is no expensive repair required, but if there is, then there is. I don't think it is wise to put off a repair of that sort if it is warranted. I'm not sure how I will fund it, but first I need to find out if there is damage or not.

The battery in my car key remote has died. I have had my car 7 years now, so that is reasonable I suppose. I can lock the car just fine by, gasp, inserting the key and turning my wrist. However, I can't set the alarm. I'm not certain how much that will set me back.

So now you know everything. Stick Out Tongue

    A new battery shouldn't cost much. Between $4 and $10 from the ones I've seen. It's only pricy if you have to replace the whole remote. Drug stores or electronic departments at department stores carry them. They are with the watch batteries. Sometimes they are behind the counter and you have to ask for them. You just need the number off the old one to get a replacement.

    Thanks, Robin! I did not know the battery could come from anyplace. I thought I would need to get it from the Honda dealer, which of course is more expensive than say Walgreen's. Smile

    I had a similar situation when the battery in my garage door opener died. the remote i had was from Sears, so that's where i went and eventually got a new replacement, which didn't cost much but it was tricky trying to figure out how it would work. I don't remember if there was some configuration you had to do, but my boyfriend at the time did it forme.

    You certainly have a few issues, but hopefully you can get them all resolved reasonably. Glad you are getting your money back.

    Hi there, before you change the battery I heard a great tip that might help from a guy who repairs garage doors. He said that a key pad can get worn down by hitting the same numbers again and again. So try changing the key pad number to something you haven't used before and see if that works. Good luck!

    Definitely get that bathroom situation checked out, it can lead to structural damage if left unattended. We had that happen in an apartment and it created a mold situation that made us leave. There was no insurance that they could get rid of it without rebuilding the entire wall! Not that this will be the case with you, but you want to make sure...
