On April 27, 2019 the neighbor was sent a registered letter requesting the removal of structure, she secretly sold property to someone else who is refusing to honor our request. We are looking for legal assistance.
The sale is unlikely to have affected your rights. This is not a situation which can be solved in a question and answer forum such as this. You will need to have an attorney review the specifics of the encroachment. A lawsuit may be required.
My husband noticed that a section of the barbed wire fence between our rental property and the neighbors field had a section missing and there were tractor tire marks in our driveway and grass. He texted our landlord and he said yes he gave the neighbors permission to do so. This morning I watched... Read more »

Your question is vague as to what you mean by "is passing down" the property. Is she living and wishes to make an estate plan for passing of her property after death? Is she living and wants to convey it to you right now? Is she dead and arranged for it to pass to you in a Will, Trust, or Deed?...Read more »
There's no such thing as "his half of the lease" - unless the lease specifies that each tenant is responsible for only half the rent, which is extremely unlikely. Usually, all tenants named on the lease are jointly responsible for the rent. That means if one takes off and refuses to pay his/her...Read more »
I purchased my home back in March this year and I wish to put up an additional garage/pole barn (following all local permit rules).

I live in Olmsted township and the building commissioner had the trustees deem mine and other property a nuisance. He did not notify anyone of these actions and when I questioned him on it, he said according to the Ohio revised code he did not have to notify us, or use a court.
It depends on local ordinances. Use the Find a Lawyer tab and retain a local attorney to review the zoning code and local ordinances, and advise you if the township followed the proper process and whether you can appeal.

I spoke with neighbors and no was aware that there is a 10ft strip of public... Read more »

Sales are generally "as is" unless there is an agreement to the contrary. You referenced some escrow agreement. The sale will be governed by that document. No one should close without a valid certificate of occupancy. Whatever the buyer did (I am unsure if you are buyer or seller) was a mistake.
What can we do to stop sell of land. Heirs do not want to sell our land but the court is trying to force. All taxes are paid every year and we have roughly 45 acres. Heirs never had a dispute but courts seems to think so. How can we stop a sale we never asked for
