Knocking On Death’s Door

The caller wanted a bit of advice on, shall we say, timing. It seems one of his neighbors is dying, and the two have discussed selling/buying the house before he passes away. But the neighbor is about to enter hospice, and the caller is concerned that the “heirs or whatever they are called when the guy kicks” won’t do the deal with him, so “how do we make this happen?”

I explain that the estate is obligated to comply with a proper contract if the buyer fulfills all the terms, and he feels a bit better, but one thing still troubles him. “Can those heirs knock me out of the deal if their dad was on morphine when he signs the contract?”

I believed that they could invalidate such a transaction if they wished to do so, and he believed he didn’t like my answer. Since he didn’t hire me, I hope the neighbor made a miraculous recovery!
