Quick summary of where we’re at for those just tuning in:
I bought a home, the previous owners left a lot of junk, but among the junk is a $4k+ new refrigerator. Their expectation was to come into my home to get their fridge at the convenience. The sellers are on vacation and are currently represented by their agent. We gave the agent an additional 26 hours- Wednesday 10am to Thursday (today) until 12pm. The agent informed us that she scheduled movers for today at 2pm (…right?!?!).
I stayed at the house from 8am to 12pm, and of course, no one showed up or contacted me. I made a video of the time and date of me leaving at about 12:05pm documenting that I was there, no one came, so therefore, the agreement was breached on their end. I double checked her e-mail to me and she said movers would be here AFTER 2pm, which still violates the contract anyway, so it didn’t matter too much, but I want to make sure I have my bases covered.
I waited until now to to post the update (currently 7:25pm PST). I’ve yet to receive word from anyone that movers were coming to retrieve their (my) belongings. So the TV and Fridge (now named Freej) is now in my possession. My agent is scheduling a junk company to remove said junk and will be sending the other agent the invoice. My agent is also scheduling carpet cleaners and a repairman for services and will also be sending the invoice to the other agent; the previous owners made absolutely no attempt to clean up and it’s VERY evident.
At this point, the situation is legally done. Neither my agent or I will be responding to any calls, texts, or e-mails on this matter, and any interaction between us and them will only be what is mandatory if they try to proceed litigation. My lawyer friend says we got all our bases covered and we’re fine and dandy!
I’ll post an additional update if there are any changes our aforementioned plan, or if there are any other exciting happenings! Thank you all for your emotional energy and support!
