Q: Can I sue for breach of contract?
I agreed to do a quick claim deed transfer when I got behind on my taxes and in the deed it states that I agree to pay $500 a month to rent and also had the option to buy my property back within the first year for $10,000 my year ain't up but he's selling my property and tearing down the buildings on it can I sue him for breach of contract if I got evicted for failure to pay because he wouldn't pick up the money but it doesn't stay in the contract I have to be on the property to have that option to buy it back.
A: You need to take a copy of the deed and any paperwork to a real estate lawyer immediately. Lawyers cannot give you advice based on a document they have no way to review in an online forum. Time is of the essence in this case so consult with a lawyer as soon as possible.
