This story could lead in some interesting directions if we think about it a bit. If you purchase something from someone who had no right to sell it because it really wasn’t theirs you stand to lose your money and the property you obtained. Buyer beware is always advisable. In the US we don’t really have property rights any longer. Governments can confiscate your property when they decide you didn’t pay enough “property tax”. Why should failure to pay a government tax result in forfeiture of your property?! I have seen people reduced to renters in their own “theoretically” purchased homes because the property taxes became ludicrously high. Additionally, it is a government official who sets the assessed value of the property! Something smells really bad with our current system of mortgages involving banks/lenders, property taxation to fund government schools and the current property confiscation allowed under the system. (Don’t get me started on “required” insurance on said property!) Corporations and non-human entities such as governments should never be considered to “own” property. They may regulate some uses of public land, maybe, but all transfers of personal property and private real estate should be between two people, I think. I hope most governments end up looking like the naive 16 year old in this case. I hope “We the People” make off with the property AND the money, too. Silly government, property is for people!
Can I identify as “we” to get the multi-family insurance discount?
