Now the current owners are threatening civil lawsuit eventhough I didn't know about the lien with the coast guard. I had the boat registered thorough the DMV. The broker was the one who looked up all liens against the title.
You may be found to be a bona fide purchaser and seller--unaware of the lien--and you may not be bound by its terms. This is a complicated case, and I would highly advise speaking with a qualified lawyer.

A Missouri attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for three weeks. This is a complex matter. Evaluation of the septic system could involve the expertise of civil engineers and wastewater experts. Assessment of contamination could involve sampling and lab analysis conducted by...Read more »
No one can answer that in this online forum. It requires a review of your purchase agreement. You will need to hire a real estate lawyer to review it. Honestly, you should not purchase real estate without one.

I want to be sure I’m protected if the buyer defaults, or fails to maintain the business. The business is a franchised restaurant so there standards that need to be maintained. If the agreement includes a down payment, would I retain it as well?
