Q: How did a MI township give a building permit for an owner to build a house, and later a garage, on a landlocked property
that I now own!
A: First thing you will need to do is to go down to the township and visit the planning or building department to determine how the permits were issued. See ProvenResource.com for more information.
Landlocked? How exactly did they get access to build anything if there is no access at all?
There are WAY more questions here than can be addressed in a public forum. You need to have a survey and plat map and your deed showing how this land is 'landlocked' and provide all that documentation to a local real estate attorney to review (which frankly you should have done before buying!) to get to the heart of what is going on here.
Don't be 'penny wise and pound foolish' about this -- get some local legal advice and THEN talk to local officials about the permits and how this was done!
