The Attorney communication clearly states in bold and underlined, compensation 'In Addition To' the trade or modification values.
I'm not an attorney - but that language is straight forward.
You are right... just like everyone that has pointed out that the actually papers state Value + Compensation.
What people are not realizing is that the actual cheat sheet charts are not part of that agreement. What they are is a cheat sheet to determine the final value and whomever created those spreadsheets decided to build the value in. (Most likely to hide the fact that they are giving you Trade-In as a base.
If the spreadsheets were created to literarily mirror the text (for people that don't understand what the word Combined means) they should have listed column 1 as 2 parts ... A = your Trade in value base + B = Your Compensation value.
Had they done that, we'd only be at 400 post now
