Some months ago I was contacted by interstate homeowner with diabolical house problems, a dispute that dragged on, health and finances deteriorating and a expensive and protracted proceedings looming. I was called because owner could not be confident of getting a truly independent report locally because everyone was in everyones else's pocket. I produced independent expert report and recommended dwelling be demolished because of the scale of the problems and unreliability of the fix. I recommended that owner be compensated for the full cost of demolition and reconstruction or (here is the master stroke) alternatively that builder purchases the home from the owner for a fair market value. After some posturing between parties of the dispute here is the email I got today:
Wonderful news - my matter has settled! The builder raised his offer to a fair market value so will be able to move on without fear of future liability.
I am not able to express just how grateful I am for all your and Ivanka's professional expertise, integrity and assistance in achieving this result. This would not have happened without you. Your patience in dealing with me is also kind and very much appreciated.
A HEARTFELT THANK YOU!
Forgive me for gloating but who is the real McCoy?
