I just told Bro what the story is: how much he owes me and that I can no longer own a home with him and what his options were: Partition agreement, buyout, sell the house.
He would not listen to reason. He saw the amount and told me he had no way to pay it and that he could not meet my deadline — I gave him until December 1.And that with commissions and the distribution from the stock he can easily pay it
When I told him he had the distribution and his commissions, he said “I need the money to pay everybody else off” and he is still insisting his debt is about 30 grand.
He does not want to make good on this. This is an easy way out for him, hand up the distribution money — that maybe will be 20 grand — and he still has commission money each week. No go and a NO.
He got verbally abusive and screamed; I called the cops so it would be a matter of record he got out of line and that if anything happened, I more or less wanted it on record what he did today.
He would not listen to the options being I cannot own a home with him. I said “Bro, I am telling you now I may have to take you to court rather than blindsiding you; I am giving you a chance to make good.” He wouldn’t listen.
I heard part of the statement he gave to the cops. He turned it around and made it all about the girlfriend. that wasn’t it at all. How I wanted “to draw a line down the center of the house” (that’s how he interpreted “partition action”) and how I wanted to evict her (I told her I asked and I was told by atty I cold not). “She just doesn’t like her and she wants my gf out of here….” Good grief.
The cops spoke to me; I told them he wasn’t happy when I told him I would have to take him to court to pay up on money he owed me. These cops may think I/we are nuts. I don’t even care anymore: I want this to end and I have had enough.
I am sorry I just didn’t sue him outright with no warning. Maybe I would have avoided a scene like I just had today.
He’s telling me that there is no way I can take out a loan using this house as collateral. And that my credit score probably wasn’t good enough to do it anyway and that he will have the loan blocked.
There is nobody to talk to about this. I have exactly 2 close friends and they are not around; this morning I alerted the executor to tell him what the deal was and that I’d probably be suing Bro.
Disgraceful, all of this. This is a nightmare that isn’t ending.
And oh yeah…I followed up on 2 jobs this morning. Both were advertised last week: One is already filled and the other one…well, they’re still looking at resumes and they will call whoever they are interested again.
Big fat strike out. So what the hell else is new here???
“How do you expect to pay that loan back???” Uh, I’d get a tenant upstairs and I’d charge rent and that would be my money for my monthly payment. RIGHT??? BOYOBOY is he dumb.
I called atty; he says bro can indeed block it — I am going back to him tomorrow to see what we can do. THis case will need a mediator.
