Ms. Mary Prudent absolutely loved the house!
It was a great neighborhood where her kids could play and walk to school. Ms. Prudent could even walk to church from her home and her husband’s job was but only a 10 minute drive away.
The house was simply perfect for Ms. Prudent’s family.
Ms. Connie Connor, the owner of the home, offered to lease the home to Ms. Prudent with an option to buy with the condition that Ms. Prudent pay a deposit of $40,000.00 in order to lease the home.
Even though Ms. Prudent loved the home, she decided that the most prudent thing to do would be to go speak to her attorney before paying so much money for a rental.
When Ms. Prudent was in the conference room with her attorney, it was quickly brought to her attention that Ms. Connor did not have the right to rent or sell the home for various legal reasons. In other words, Ms. Prudent’s attorney saved her from committing a $40,000.00 mistake.
