"You're asking someone to buy a burning house." - Paul Ayers about the selling of Grand View.
The State of California has told the owner of Grand View to place the cemetery up for sale. Asking price: $1 million dollars, or best offer.
With lawsuits going on for the next three years at least, anyone who buys it, is getting themselves "a burning house." And who wants to buy a burning house, when you don't even know what the pieces are going to look like until after the smoke clears.
The LA Daily News report if the owners walk away, the county will take ownership, but the attorneys say the relatives could take ownership, if "they receive a favorable settlement."
Whatever happens, it will not be quick. You can read more at this link.
