My last words about this subject.
Allow me to explain. About 19 years ago I lost my wife AND my only daughter. At the time I owned a home in Las Vegas. It was an older house but it was completely paid for.
Someone who cared about me convinced me to go to Grief Counseling and I took their advice. It was there that I met a lady who befriended me and scolded me for ignoring grief counseling and my church. She was also widowed and she lived alone. The ladies name is Mary, and fifteen years ago we decided to get married in 2001.
Mary had a new home here in Anthem, and she had made out a will to leave the home and contents to her family members. I did not want Mary to change her plans, so Mary and I both went to a Trust Lawyer and he drew up a Trust Document that would safeguard her last wishes for her family.
In 2001 I sold my older home and put the money in a bank account to supplement our Social Security. Mary and I both signed a Trust Document that leaves the home in Sun City Anthem to her family members. I have no legal interest in the property now nor did I in 2001 when we married. The official recorded State records list Mary as the “Trustee”
When we married I was never given a set of documents from Sun City Anthem that an owner receives when they buy the property. I never signed and agreement with the SCA Association, nor did they demand that I do so. All mail and magazines etc. come to our home addressed to the Goldman Family Trust (Goldman was Mary’s last name before she became Mrs McCullough). Recently when we received a check from the construction defect lawsuit, Mary was told by the SCA management that only her signature would be accepted.
The Sun City Anthem Board members and their lawyers failed to notify the Trust when they threatened to put a lien on the property, and they also lied and said I was the owner when they forced me to pay money to the Association’s lawyer.
