Petitioners’ Move Back to Hagerstown and the Sale of the Berlin
House and the South Point Road Lot
In January 2001, Ms. Farah was diagnosed with an aggressive
and rare form of lung cancer requiring major surgery and medical
followup. At that time, petitioners were unsure of her chances
of survival and their prospects for the future. As they needed
additional funds, and felt Ms. Farah’s future medical needs would
be best served in a major medical center, petitioners decided to
sell the Berlin house and the South Point Road lot.
In March 2001, Dr. Farah consulted with his attorney
regarding his estate plan and the sale of the two properties. On
March 11, 2001, petitioners entered into a listing agreement to
sell the Berlin residence, together with the South Point Road
lot. The listing agreement listed the owner of the South Point
Road lot as the Family Partnership. Petitioners never considered
selling the properties separately.
In the spring of 2001, Dr. Farah was a candidate for a
position on the Maryland Board of Physician Quality Assurance
(BPQA). Dr. Farah’s candidate submission to the BPQA
represented that he resided in Hagerstown, Maryland. In May
2001, Dr. Farah began working part time as the Medical Director
for Colonial Management Group in Hagerstown, Maryland.
Consequently, Dr. Farah began spending more time in Hagerstown.
