:hello:

I've been very busy this week. I started some detective work regarding the status of my parents' home. Seems the website of the realtor that is listing the house is set up to pick up homes which are owned by HUD. The agency is not actually contracted to represent the principle. So, I started off with the help of our compliance person in my office, who is an attorney. Her job allows her access to courts via certain subscriptions for access to data which is generally not published online. We determined I would have to contact the Recorder's Office in the county where the house is located to see what I could get. A *very helpful* lady in the office sent me a plethora of documents related to the property. I poured over the documents and concluded the mortgage is held by HUD. So, my next step was to contact HUD and plead my case to see if I can purchase the property.

My first call, to the office in Chicago, was returned about two hours later from a very police gentleman. He affirmed the property is owned by HUD and that I would have to contact the FHA section of the agency (he did give me the number). AWESOME. I called that number and left a message for someone to return my call. A few hours later, I got antsy and opted to call again. This time, I opted to wait in the queue to see what happened. It was about a 10 minute wait when a live agent answered the call. After he recorded my information (name, telephone number, and address) I explained the entire story. He was very patient, understanding, and courteous. Unfortunately, he is a front-line person and could only give me a limited amount of information. He and I concluded there is a problem with the status of the property since my mother passed in 2018 (dad passed in 2014) and the property is still in limbo. Unfortunately, I thought I was putting him on mute for a moment and I disconnected the call. I feel really bad about that because he was extremely polite and helpful.

So, lawyer friend and I get back on the case. She starts digging through records (online) at the County Recorder and we discover what appears to be my mother's Will filed two months after her death. The action on the Will shows as pending, which is very unusual considering this was back in October, 2018. The property still shows being titled in both their names, so we concluded the brother who was the Executor of the Estate skipped a step. He seems to have thought all he had to do was throw the keys at the bank and his part is done. Apparently, he needed to transfer the title to the Estate so the mortgage company could then transfer it for proper and legal clear chain of title. This means the property has a clouded title. I will contact the Recorder's Office on Tuesday to get more information regarding the Will that has been filed.

The second person I spoke with at HUD said HUD prefers to divest itself of properties as quickly as possible. So, I shouldn't be worried about the property management company performing repairs or remodels of any type. Based on my oldest brother's comments about his visit last fall, they've cut some of the trees back from the house so that someone can actually walk around the house. My parents were nutty hermits who didn't want any trees cut or trimmed, so the entire property is an overgrown jungle. Hopefully, I can get more movement in the next week to see if I can intervene if my one brother still has legal paperwork to sign.

Another day. :yawn:

My aunt wants me to pick some things up at our local market today. That will probably be it for events.

I've been wondering when I can get my aunt vaccinated. Some elderly in the state already are, but out here... :shrug:
It's a mystery here in Richmond, too, about when we're due for vaccinations. There's a lot of disorganization.
Same here. Some people are getting vaccinated, others not. And I really want to get my aunt vaccinated. As for me, with the way things are going I probably won't get vaccinated this year if ever.

Not sure what we'll do today here in Beaufort. There are cute shops but I'm not going in them because of COVID. So we may walk the beaches and the waterfronts which are all quite beautiful. I'll try to take some pics.
Have fun!

Good afternoon! :hello:

Ha! The cranes knew I wanted to take their picture today. They were no where to be seen. :mellow:

I'm all done house checking. They will be home tonight.

Now that vacation is over, I'll have to get back to doing (ugh) chores. My kitchen is a disaster area.

I had blood work done Friday. There are a couple of things off that I can work on. I'll discuss these with my doctor Monday.

Hope you all have a good day. :thumbsup:

Good afternoon, everybody. :hello:

My Mother volunteers at her church and the other day she was in there disinfecting the place with disinfectant mist. She came home and was having lunch, and Chloe was being all frisky, rolling around on the table and nuzzling my Mother's hair. Then she went berserk, jumping around and knocking stuff off the counters. Yup, disinfectant mist is a new drug. :lol:

Madeliaette, please be careful, and do not fall for the notion that COVID is just like having the flu....it is not.
That's true. There's no way to predict how the virus will affect a specific person, although good health is certainly a big help.

Is it possible that you and your brothers already own it, or can claim it?

Good morning!

The only thing I have today is parking lot church service. I am looking forward to getting out of the house. Since I am not handing out bulletins, Brutus will go with me. He has been depressed from being shut in my room all week.

Today, Kelly says she is "super congested", but she made it through yesterday without taking a nap. It is the end of week two of the virus for her.

been to the plot and came home with a couple of leeks and a bag bursting of huge burssells sprouts - just in case i have to isolate. there is likely to be another 500g-kilo sprouts to go...and a few weeny/leafy 'things' i can use afterwards. i had b-sprouts in veggie gravy for lunch with a half glass of wine...and will have the other half with a mixed veg 'cheese' n chili bake for dinner. just trying to decide if i want to make a crumble or a 1lb loaf...hmmm...crumble = fruit, but bread = tastier.hmmmmmmmm

Good afternoon. :hello:

Did some laundry. It's folded but not yet in drawers. If I walk in the bedroom I know Queenie will be laying on something clean. I also did the dishes. 😒

Well, speak of the devil.... someone is not sleeping on clean clothes. Someone is sitting beside me staring. And purring. Someone thinks this combination will get her some food. Huh. It might even work.

Well, everyone have a good afternoon. I'm almost ready for a nap. :yawn:

Good afternoon. :hello:

Started my day with a Dr appointment. Things are doing well. He is going to start me on a low dose of thyroid medication. Truthfully, we spent more time talking about the crap going on in Washington. He also urged me to keep checking the FL Dept of Health and the county department of health for info on the vaccine.

Just got a text. My meds are ready, so I'll be going out to pick that up.

Other than that, not much going on.

Have a good day! :thumbsup:
