I have been reading The Bridge Across Forever. I read a sentence which is a little bit odd in my view, but I think some experts can help me understand it:
We have sold nearly everything he owns to make the down payment!
But I think it should have been:
We have sold nearly everything he owned to make the down payment!
The property she is talking about is property that was sold.
And “he” had that property so it should have been “he owned”.
Your feedback on this would be appreciated.
