Can’t tell the story without a frat... I’ll try
I took a lease over for a friend moving back to Hawaii. They had dogs and the dogs had to say here for 6 months. I kept the dogs in this house for 4 or those 6. So I’ve been here since the middle of September.
We decided we really licked the place and about 2 months ago started speaking with the owners about staying. Worked out the price and came up with an agreement.
The house was not as well kept as it should have been and the previous tenants didn’t tell them. They (the owners) knew because they had a realtor come out and look at the house about a year ago. These were friends of mine. (Previous co workers really)
ive been completely honest with the owners and once we had an agreement I started getting shit done. I’ve put in around 100 hours of work. Plumbing, pressure washing, caulk work, simple painting, started a complete remodel of a bathroom, deep cleaning, etc..
I sent a signed lease about 5 weeks ago. We’ve been in touch and it hasn’t been an issue they haven’t sent a signed copy back.
They just texted me they want to sell. Well... I’m moved in. I know I’m fucked. But I only put the work in because I liked the place.
I know the OG will be brutal, but is a handshake and verbal agreement not worth anything anymore? I singed the agreement over a month ago. Does that mean nothing.
Ill end my vent/rant.
What would you do.
