I first saw the apartment on Wednesday It reminded me of a dog kennel how 2+ people
Assistant: Where are you? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: Could live in this I dont know also the apartment next door is not complete and will have workmen around for some time. Consequently I will not be completing on this property ever. I am in Peterborough in the UK can you help?
Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: I have taken no steps so far.
Assistant: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
