When I got married 13 years ago , or was it 14 years ago , I told my wife that I couldn't promise her that we would be rich or famous but that I was certain that she would not be bored.
I did not realize that would also be the result of my decision to manage property for others. So imagine my surprise to find myself in between a client , 3 female cops , a felon and a obsessive cumpulsive live-in caregiver turned into a leach of a holdover tenant before 8 in the morning.
In order to avoid this scenario you need to keep a few rules in mind
Rule #1 , no guns before coffee.
Rule # 2 , do not move a caregiver into your aging family members home without a clear written agreement as to what happens when the in-firmed becomes the deceased.
In this case the caregiver decided that the deceased would have wanted her to stay there untill she found a new place, however long that took. Her friend the felon also thought that the deceased would rather his tools and compressor be put to good use rather then being passed to his heirs.
The story has a happy ending due to an alert neighbor that thought a hippy loading a uhaul at 6 am just did not look right. The felon repented and returned the gifts , the caregiver was quickly packed out of the house and signed off on a hastily prepared release of any claim to the house or any property contained within.
Best of all , I got my coffee and was on the road with the locks changed by 10:30
