Here is an article in The [Lowell] Sun that tells of a couple forfeiting $31,000 due to a misunderstanding. It is also a good example of why the average citizen who commutes by train to Boston is dubious about lawyers and judges.
It turns out the judge thought the couple's unwillingness to sell their current home while trying to buy a new one was unreasonable. To get the loan they needed to sell their current home, per the loan folks. The deposit went poof.
I wonder if they had a good lawyer? I wonder if they could sue their lawyer?
Remember, the article will go away soon.
