In San Francisco because of an error in the process of paying taxes, the city government sold one of the elite streets. Holders of the prestigious quarter of Presidio Terrace, became the wife Tina Lam and Michael Cheng, reports CNBC.
The amount of the transaction is 90 thousand dollars.
This area was put on sale in 2015 due to the fact that the local residents 30 years do not pay tax of only $ 14 per year. The problem arose due to the fact that the account in error came to the postal address of the former representative of the Association of inhabitants of the quarter.
While the people themselves knew nothing about the auction, as the street was auctioned along with other lots.
Spouses are not going to sell the street back. Now they have the right to dispose of the sidewalks, trees and other public facilities. It is possible that residents will now have to pay couple for Parking.
Owners of real estate have appealed to local authorities with a request to cancel the transaction, calling it a cunning ploy to make money, said “bi-Bi-si”.
The house on Presidio Terrace is considered one of the most expensive in the city. One of them recently put up for sale for 6.5 million dollars, the other for 14.5 million dollars.
