Need legal/liability advice
Got a work order yesterday..."repair sump pump. Inspection reports malfunctioning and throwing water onto the floor."
Went there this evening and there was a sign on the door....
DO NOT ENTER!
YOU AND WELLS FARGO HAVE NO RIGHTS.
(no contact info)
I've been in this home several times before. It is fully furnished with a finished basement, carpet, bedrooms, pool table, bar, brand new 52" LCD smart TV....the whole nine yards. Not stuff I wish to be liable for.
From talking with neighbors, the lady went to the hospital around Christmas and then passed away, leaving a son and daughter, as her husband had passed a few years previous.
Now I don't believe they are right...that Wells has no right to the property. Banks foreclose on unpaid property, not people, so a death would have no bearing on the situation.
I don't want to be liable for further water damage to the the content, but on the other hand I don't need some dirt bag attorney jacking me up for trespassing and whatever other trumped up crap he can get on me.
What would YOU do? Thanks!
PS I do not live in Washington where P&P is illegal.
