Last week I was so excited to get a phone call from my agent Mae. She knows, of course, that we are on the lookout now for a new place to live. She told me on the phone that she had a house for me to look at and its not that far from my house right now. That really makes me happy since we like to live in this part of town. Near to everything. Location right now is really a plus for us. She knows that we want to be in a quiet neighborhood and not in a traffic area. She told me that the house that she wants me to see has the specifications that I was telling her about. So we set up the time to meet up and go from there to see the house.
Well, we kind of got lost at first because the address didn’t seem correct. In our neighborhood, all of our street names are gem stones. She told me that the house that the address given to her was in this area. I told her its not because by just the name alone its not a gem stone name. This was also her first time seeing the house. The address was given to her by a friend. We just kept on looking and went to a lot of street and finally found it. It was really on the other side of Marfori. A few blocks from our house.
Mae immediately rang the bell and some lady came out from the house. Mae then asked for Miss Jenny I think (can’t remember her name). The lady said that it was her. So Mae told her that the best friend of the owner told Mae to find a renter for the house, and that the owner wanted it rented as soon as possible.
Just by observing the exchange of Mae and the lady I knew it was not looking good. Jenny immediately asked Mae who was sending us there and did we know that she’s the sister of the owner? Mae told her that “I was told that its just the caretaker were here and that the mom and the sister comes here sometimes.” Jenny immediately told us that she would not let us in and had not been informed by her sister. So Mae then called up her contact and told her that the house is not for rent right now. Mae’s friend talked to Jenny and then Jenny let us in to see the house.
While having the tour Jenny was fuming and saying how dare her sister have this house rented. That she didn’t have the courtesy to tell her. Mae told Jenny “we came here because I was told that this house is for rent. I didn’t know about it unless somebody told me. That’s the only reason why we are here.” Jenny understands what Mae meant, we just came there because it was told to Mae that its for rent.
Jenny told us that she (Jenny) owned the land with a small house before. She said that since her sister went to Ireland to work, the sister told her that she would build a house for Jenny and their mom. So Jenny let her sister tear down the old house to put this nice 2 story house. Jenny told us that her sister said that Jenny and her mom can stay there for as long as they want. When Jenny and her sister made the agreement, the sister of Jenny was single at that time. The problem now was that the sister that owned the house that worked in Ireland got married like over a year ago to a Filipino guy. She petitioned the guy to come and live with her to Ireland. I think Jenny mentioned he just went to Ireland like 2 months or so ago.
While touring the house Jenny wanted Mae to call Mae’s contact. So Jenny talked to the Mae’s contact, the lady told Jenny the people’s name that wanted the house rented. It turned out really that the people that wanted the house rented were the husband and the mother-in-law of the sister of Jenny. As soon as Jenny found out who was behind it Jenny was really mad and told us that she never would move out on the house. Mae asked Jenny who really owned the house and lot? Jenny said that she owned the lot and the sister built the house. But in the title is just in her sister’s name. I told Jenny “you and your sister had to talk about it. You will end up fighting later just over this house. It’s not worth it.”
Jenny said that their mom is not in good health right now. I really had a feeling that the sisters will end up fighting over the house. I’m pretty sure the husband wants the family of his wife moved out on that house. I think he wants his mom taking over the place. I told Jenny right there I am not interested on the house and I will never recommend to anyone I know. It’s just not worth the hassle.
Gosh, I don’t know those people but its a heartache seeing them torn apart by just a house and lot. I really hope that they can resolve their problem before it gets bigger. I will ask my agent for more updates on that. I hope its a better one. Let you guys know.
