Oh, it’s a treat!! Have you had the chance to learn the GE shuffle? It’s the only dance that you can do on the phone. The seller has a name and a number. You call and ask about the property. Of course, you actually leave a voice mail, 2 times a day for three days, then, maybe, you get to talk to a person. They tell you they don’t have the file. They don’t know why you called them. Then they give you the number of someone else who has the file. Leave them some voice mails, then find out that they have the file, but can’t tell you anything without consent from the seller. You send them consent. Now, surprise, they still can’t tell you anything, because the lawyer has the file. Only the lawyer can tell you what you need to know. Leave 8 to 10 voice mails with the lawyer. Call at all hours of the day. Finally, the lawyer tells you that they cannot divulge anything, you must talk to someone at GE. They give you the same name and number you got from the seller. It’s like a bad Monty Python skit, only you’ve got thousands of dollars on the line.
