Ron, you ain’t kidding! =) I think If I learn one thing in REI every day, I’ll still be learning til the day I die, which I am hoping is a ripe 90 or more!
I talked to the seller again, and everything has already went through probate, she is the executor and the home was empty. Then Brother decided to break the locks and move on in. I told her I will still have to be able to veiw the home inside to be able to make her an offer, but she said the brother is very violent.
I told her I would call the local authorities and see what she can do. (I am trying to do the phone stuff for her, so if I do help her get him out by finding out how… so she will still want to sell to me when he is gone, and not try to sell to someone else for more) The cops told me as long as he wasn’t living in the home when the owner died, or on a lease that they could just have a police go with them and have him removed from the property more than likely. They will want to hear his side, of course… and you never know what that will be.
Anyway we shall see how it goes, the ball is in their court now. Has anyone else dealt with an issue like this, and what did you do to try to keep yourself in the deal ?
