Karl Marx states in his COMMUNIST MANIFESTO that he wants to abolish private property. Has the National Trust for Historic Preservation in Washington DC accomplished Marx's deam? BARN BUILDER INTERRUPTED chronicals how historic buildings were confiscated from Bunker Jaeger after he purchased a dilapidated, historic farmhouse and barn in Chester Springs, Pennsylvania in 1983. The property's deed had a "covenant agreement" (an historic easement) on it by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, a large quasi-private, government-sanctioned Trust in Washington DC. After Bunker had spent about 40 years meticulously preserving and fixing up the house and barn -- even employing Amish craftsmen for intricate reconstruction -- the National Trust decided that it wanted Bunker to "contribute" his house and barn to their general neighborhood preservation project, a multi-million dollar project that included three other buildings and a mill.
After many years of negotiation, Bunker and the National Trust were unable to arrive at an equitable agreement. The National Trust then hired local lawyers to find a way to acquire Bunker's property, with or without his cooperation. To this end, they found a minor infraction on the "deed covenant" and used this to open a series of legal actions. The National Trust claimed that Bunker had installed some "non-historic" windows in his house. Bunker countered that he had express authorization from the National Trust's chief architect to install the windows. He further explained that the windows were temporary to keep destructive weather out of the house while he focused his attention on restoration of the Barn, much of which was missing a roof. (See short video tour of the barn at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i69-ki...) In reaction to this, the lawyers for the National Trust forbid the chief architect from having any further communications with Bunker and proceeded to use the windows to build their case.
To facilitate their acquisition plans, the National Trust then requested Bunker post an intimidating $400,000 bond and comply with a growing list of dictates. When Bunker was unwilling to comply, they used this as further "grounds" to step up their legal harassment for another four years. This may have caused Bunker serious health problems, for this legal harassment culminated in the National Trust physically sending in a small armada of lawyers, armed guards and a constable to literally throw him and his fiancée out of his house. As this abuse was escalating, Bunker and his family hired an MAI appraiser to evaluate the house, barn and 2 acres. The appraisal came in just over $400,000 but in August of 2011, the National Trust, without consulting Bunker as to listing price -- or even getting his signature on the sale agreement -- sold the house and barn for $145,000 -- just enough to cover their legal fees and other expenses, such as the police powers they improperly used against a citizen.
We are now seeking counsel, on a contingency basis, that would able and willing to bring legal action against the National Trust (http://www.nationaltrust.org) and possibly the "receiver". We believe the National Trust has no Constitutional authority to deed restrict or confiscate private property no matter what "social good" is claimed and the court-appointed receiver may have violated her fiduciary responsibilities when she sold the property for way under market value. Media, research professionals and legal counsel interested in helping us with this case should contact us at 212-933-9374 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
