This was one of the most difficult and complicated transactions of my 35-year career. Here's a brief summary: 1. Divorcing Sellers, each difficult to reach and living far away AND not speaking to each other (Lawyered up). 2. Two structures (One duplex, one SFH) on one lot. The lot had been split years ago, but the County would not assign a second APN until one of the properties (Turned out to be this one) was sold. 3. The tenant of the SFH was the Buyer of the duplex. 4. The main player of the two Sellers was very time-consuming and not easy to work with. She also had trouble providing some documentation due to the divorce and the fact some of her papers were in SoCal and she was in Northern CA. 5. Allocation of property taxes was only established by the County in a timely manner (allowing us to close) due to the unrelenting efforts of Tana and Team. Tana and Jennifer spent untold hours on this file. The CT staff spent much time also. I really think a lesser-caliber title company Team would still be muddling through this file for weeks to come. Kudos to Tana and Team!
