Steve Adler closed escrow May 17 on the five-bedroom, 1.5 bath house on Carob Tree Lane in El Cajon. The purchase agreement, signed in December, said the sellers would be out on the day escrow closed, but they haven't moved out yet, according to San Diego 6.
As San Diego 6 reported last week, Adler, his wife, and their three kids see the sellers every day. With their previous lease expired and nowhere else to go, the Adlers have moved into an attached two-bedroom "granny flat" next to the garage of their new house. The sellers still live in the main portion. Adler is paying the full mortgage himself.
"It's unfortunate because this could have been the house of our dreams, but really it's turned into a nightmare," Adler said.
