Yet another astonishing story of America--or at least California--in 2021.
On January 31, 2020, the Alberts scraped together $560,000 in cash and gained title to the property. They have yet to move in.
Despite having pocketed $560,000 and given up title, the original owner refuses to leave. Even under normal circumstances, this would be a problem for the new homeowners because California landlord-tenant laws are so hostile to the landlord.
