The $600,000 condominium at the end of the sea snake is about to become a shambles, thanks to its landlord.
Courtney Palm is an eight-bedroom, $2.5 million condominium that sits on the southern tip of the Chesapeake Bay.
It is a luxury project, but one that has been plagued by financial woes and is currently struggling to make ends meet.
The property has been vacant since at least 2013, when the condo’s owner, former president of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Trump adviser Kevin Madden, sold the property for a fraction of what he paid for it.
In 2017, a judge awarded the condominium to the owner of the nearby property, but the court also denied him the right to sell the property.
In 2018, the owner and his partners sued the state of Virginia for violating the terms of their lease agreement.
According to documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation, the former president and his partner were told by the condo’s owner that the condos lease was a “solemn obligation,” and that if the owner didn’t make the necessary payments, the lease would end.
The owner was able to keep the condop’s property by agreeing to buy the condoness at a reduced price, but he was unable to sell it until 2018.
When the former owner of courtneypalm.com was contacted, he said he was “stuck with the problem,” but said he “did everything possible to get it back.”
The former president, who was not named in the documents, has a history of being a bad landlord.
In the 1990s, he sued a condo owner and two condo owners who were allegedly “scammed out of $600K” and “had no right to buy a condo on their land.”
In the suit, the President was quoted as saying, “The owner and the owners of the condo had no right of occupancy and could not negotiate to sell them out.”
The condominium owners did not return calls seeking comment.
