“My client’s payment is for the eviction notice and they’ve already agreed to pay that, but they’re already taking it,” Perry told Recode.
“And they haven’t agreed to anything else.”
Perry added that if he were a bank, he would give them $1,500, but that he didn’t think he could do that.
“The bank would probably say, ‘Yeah, you’ve done a good job, we’re going to give you $1 million, but I don’t think that’s fair.
That’s a bad deal, you’re going out of business.'”
Perry said that he was told by one of the property managers that they were not going to be able to sell the property until a “conditional payment” was made.
“So I was trying to figure out how to get this done, and then my client had a little more money, and they said, ‘No, no, you don’t want to pay us until we’ve paid $1 billion,'” Perry said.
“I said, oh, well we’ll go back to that $1B.
It’s a $1-billion-dollar property.
So I said, okay, well, $1M.”
The real estate developer said that there was a delay because they wanted to get the property appraised before they could sell it, and said that they would have to go through a court process to get it appraised.
“But they have a court order,” Perry said, before adding that he thought the deal would be “pretty easy.”
Perrys wife, Kristin, told Recomode that he did not want to comment on the specifics of the deal, but he did say that they made “a good decision.”
“We did the best we could, and I was really proud of him for making the decision that he made,” Kristin Perry said of her husband.
