I have had a fabulous time with this latest one.
The client is serving time in the federal penitentiary for a slew of offenses, and I'm trying to communicate with someone who is essentially incommunicado. They don't, apparently, have faxes in prison; neither do they have mail service that is reliable. They keep transfering my client around the country so that he's in one place just long enough for me to send a package after he leaves there.
I've been trying to close this property since Sept. 28th, and it finally closed today!!
I can already hear you saying, "Have you ever heard of a power of attorney?" Why yes, I actually have. Seemingly, my client has not. And when the concept was explained to him, he was horrified that his lovely and gracious wife was going to "juke" him and take all of his money. A reasonable suspicion I guess.
Well, I learned my lesson on this one: plan ahead, and get some clients who are not in the clink.
