I'm home alone one more time....
The T left last Tuesday. He had a lot of things to go over with a few of our suppliers so that is what he is doing during this and the following week. He really needed to make this trip so we thought it was better to do it now that we are just starting with all the renovation work in the new rental than once we are in the "rush" phase.
I went to visit my mom last weekend and find out she received this letter from the government.
My grandparents from my dad's side died a few years ago. They had a few properties and assigned them one for each of their children, so as my father had already past away, the property would be for my mom. It turned out that there is some legal paperwork missing, the time has passed and the issue is still unsolved. The problem is that by law there is this tax you need to pay when you have a property and because of the situation it hasn't been paid. The issue is that the property is still under my grandparent's name and at this point we are not sure if the legal problems will be resolved, so as you can imagine we don't want to "invest" and pay this taxes for a property that may never be for my mom.
The letter is basicaly demanding the payment of this taxes or they will start a legal process to auction the property..... Sooo, I will need to go and try to talk to somebody at the government's office to explain the situation. I hope I can find a way to stop this legal process and delay the payment of the taxes until the legal issues are solved!
I have this other thing going on in my mind that I haven't been able to get a good night sleep for the last few days..... but I really don't want to go into details at this point as I think I may be over-reacting about it, so that's it for now.
Have a great thursday!!!
