A Progress Report
I am or was in the process of selling my apartment or, to be more precise, my one-ninth of a small apartment building. The first person who visited made an offer I considered acceptable.
However, the co-owners of this building will not allow anyone to take a mortgage to pay for his or her ninth of the building. It has to be paid in full. My portion was bought by proxy. What a mistake!
At any rate, I have not been able to write since learning that I am unlikely to find a buyer for my property.
Bells in Russian Music
However, we have more bells in Russian music. Modest Mussorgsky was one the “Five” composers, the “mighty handful,” who wanted to give an identity to the music of Russia.
I have used Hartmann’s design in an earlier post, but in a different context and in relatively finer days for the Ukraine.

I send all of you my kindest regards. ♥

I am so sorry it is proving difficult to sell your apartment. Such a lot of stress which you could do without.
I can’t believe this. The person who wanted to buy my share was a trustworthy woman who wanted to be near her daughter who will be practicing medicine in Sherbrooke. I will have to take the matter to a competent lawyer. I can’t rent this apartment. Children cannot visit, except briefly, and the co-owners have given themselves the right to refuse a potential buyer. There is something wrong. Despite my clear request, the relevant documents were not examined by a competent notary and the building was not inspected. My requests were perfectly legitimate. I was trivialized. The worst is being blamed for the difficulties I am facing by the very person who did not have the building inspected. I thank you for your sympathy.

So sorry to read this, Micheline. I think you need expert legal advice and fast. It’s quite frustrating, to say the least, to be ‘barred’ this way from doing what you want with your property, albeit one ninth of it, because of some technicality.
All the best. 🙂
I do need legal advice, but the cost is prohibitive. I must therefore figure out a strategy and not deviate. .
