I explained both situations.
He says I cannot evict her because she is part of his package because she is living with him.
I cannot have her arrested for trespassing. It would be no use to change the lock back because it is likely she’ll change it back to the way she wants it.
He told me to tell her not to touch the common areas — that’s the hallway, the vestibule, the front steps, the front lawn, the sidewalk and the driveway and garage and yard.
He suggested I try for the partition agreement: either I buy him out or he buys me out or we sell the house completely. He suggests I not fix the garage; if the other owners want the house they may do something else entirely different with the garage — they could demolish it and do something else with it, for example: maybe put in a carport instead or some kind of fancy tool shed with a little workshop.
He said to sue Bro for the money he owes me if Bro doesn’t pay in full by the deadline– but unless I get Bro out of here by November– not likely, too short notice!!! —- it is probably very likely he’ll pull the same shit on me with “I ain’t got no tax money”and now I will have 3 people in here that I am pulling for free: the exact thing I do not want.
And suppose he does refuse on November 1??? Then what? (besides, that is, the fact that he is being nothing but a shithead and needs his ass kicked, because of that?)
I would have to go and get a loan to buy out Bro — getting a tenant in here would be no problem. After they are in and paying rent, I could modernize the kitchen and turn the pantry/dining room closet into a mud room with a real washer in it.
Or Bro would buy me out. No way he’d get a loan with his poor credit and debt up the wazoo. So that’s not an option.
I don’t know if I should speak to a third attorney — I can’t believe I cannot get rid of her on my own and that I am stuck with her, more or less, unless the status of this house with bro in it changes: when he goes so will she.
He said to give Bro a deadline to pay up the entire amount he owes me — roughly it is about 35 grand — and if he doesn’t produce the full amount, take him to court and sue him for the amount.
That’s what I have today. There is a 2K retainer for this guy’s services.
For the last 51/2 weeks I have been pursuing this matter. I am exhausted and worn to a frazzle.
It is a shame I cannot evict her. That would be one thing — he remains behind. I still have to find a way to dispose of the problem that he is the root of. And he had the unmitigated gall to add to the problem by having her come here to live. Something sure is flukey with her being here but I can’t prove anything.
If I buy him out it will not be until after the first of the year. I plan to tell Bro my findings on Wednesday and give him his options on that day.
It looks like a certainty that that distribution with the stock will be happening by the start of next week, if not sooner. He is better off willingly handing over his distribution and using it as a make good for the money he owes me, or a partial payment — I do not know yet how much it will be that he is receiving. I will have to call the atty that is in charge of that affair so that it’s ensured I get that money in my hand. That would be one hurdle jumped. He will avoid going to court.
