So half of the money ($5,000) held in escrow to insure that the horses are removed would be their money. So that part of the move is his business. The real estate agent represented both parties in this deal. And he is absolutely an up front honest man. He said that he is working with them to find a place. He is a good man for the job. The problem much of which is in my mind comes from comments she has made. The living in a camp trailer in the driveway simply isn't going to happen. The horses will be gone. If they need to leave a load or two until the next weekend, well there will be room in the barn. If they needed me to haul a load or two, I would help out where I can. But they accepted our offer back in early February. They have had plenty of time to come up with a plan. I guess that is what is getting to me. Talking to them they don't even have a plan.
I knew he was an adult. I had read the whole thread and for some reason it flew right over my head that he was involved with the sale. My point was that, had he not been involved in the sale, that it wasn't really his business. However, it is his business. They have had more than enough time to come up with a plan, sounds like they are delusional. This is one of those situations where it's "I'm glad I'm not in your shoes." This a raw deal. Sorry, man.
That is why I plan to talk to him. He is involved financially yet as a son in law and thus he is a step back. Also as the under sheriff he understands the legal end of things. I want to give them plenty of time to get it all together but not wait until the last minute. That is why I said June 10. The horses are supposed to be gone by June 15 (Friday). If they are still there June 18 (Monday), their $5,000 is mine. I don't want their money. They have 6 weeks today to be out. Maybe this concern is all in my mind. But with all the money I paid for that place I want to move in without any trouble.
