Legal Q&A | How long can the buyer delay closing under Form 580-T?

QUESTION: In July, one of my commercial listings went under contract and we used Form 580-T. Closing was set for September 15th, and shortly before that date, the buyer’s lender informed us that the loan would not be ready. The buyer’s agent has affirmed that the buyer still wants to close, but it won’t be for another two weeks from today. My seller is very frustrated. How long can the buyer delay Closing without being in breach of contract?
