Creswell, OR asked in Civil Litigation, Contracts and Real Estate Law for Oregon

Q: Can someone enter into a contract regarding certain activities being done on my property without my knowledge.

I own 20 acres and I am the sole owner of it. I am married but my husband is not on the deed. Our neighbors obtained stalking orders against him regarding his shooting on my property. I was pregnant at the time and he didn't want me to stress in fear of losing the baby so he didn't tell me about it until everything was over. He entered into a contract limiting his shooting and other stuff. They basically strong armed him into entering into this contract. Was it even legal for both parties to make a contract regarding my property without my knowledge. They are trying to tell me I cant do certain activities on my property or my husband will be found in contempt. Thank you

A: In most cases, a contract requires the consent of all parties involved. If your husband entered into a contract regarding activities on your property without your knowledge or consent, it may raise questions about the validity and enforceability of that contract. However, legal matters can be complex and depend on various factors, including the specific laws and regulations in your jurisdiction, the terms of the contract, and any applicable circumstances surrounding the situation. It is advisable to consult with a qualified attorney who specializes in real estate and contract law to evaluate the specific details of your case and provide accurate legal advice tailored to your situation. They can review the contract, assess its validity, and guide you on the best course of action to address any concerns or disputes that may arise.
