My attorney called me this morning and said that Dick’s lawyers want to schedule a day that he can come out to the house and bring along an expert who will give them a report about any “alleged problems”. My attorney is going to come with them so that he can also see the house and so I won’t have to be here if I don’t want to. I don’t have any problem being here. I’m not afraid of Dick and his attorney. I didn’t do anything wrong, although my attorney tells me that the tact they are taking is that I am a big city, sophisticated business woman who is taking advantage of the poor old country boy, hardworking contractor. HAH! In some ways, it’s kind of cool that someone thinks they can make a case that I am sophisticated, but really? I typically have horse manure on some part of my boots at any given moment!
At any rate, we set a date for next Saturday. I asked a friend to be here also so we would outnumber them. It never hurts to be prepared.
I’m not sure exactly what this guy’s report can possibly say about this house. He’s probably a friend of Dick’s who will lie through his teeth about the house. If that’s the case, then we win because not only do I have a report from another contractor, I have a report from a certified engineer and no engineer will risk his reputation for Dick by lying about the problems with this house.
This should be fun!
