Columbus, GA asked in Real Estate Law and Foreclosure for Georgia

Q: Can we foreclose on a house that we don’t fully own? We built expecting to be able to buy the adjacent land

This is in Alabama.....We built our house on some land that we were supposed to be buying. After a fall out with the in laws they won’t sell it. Our house is sitting 5ft over on their property. If we can’t get some form of agreement to buy a portion or an easement can we foreclose on the house?

A: Without knowing the facts of your case in detail it is difficult to provide you with direction. But anyone can choose to foreclose on a home. That doesn’t mean it won’t come result in repercussions though. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558
