Check the Vacant Land Disclosure Report provided to you by the Seller and see if they listed sewer and septic available in the Seller's Vacant Land Disclosure Report. It should be listed on page 5, under item F(6) of the new Vacant Land Disclosure Report that went into use last year. If they listed...Read more »
I bought land from an individual who never went and filed the easement I actually didn't even know what an easement was until I put the land up for sale on the market and the realtor needed a copy of it I had to worry the original seller for four months just to get it and the original easement was...

I doubt the seller can get owners of other properties to execute a Deed of Easement for the benefit of your land. Suing for breach of warranties will be useless also. You probably have no choice but to either file suit in
Chancery Court to have an Easement Declared (which will be...Read more »
If you put the house in your aunt's name, then she can sell it to whomever she wants or leave it to whomever she wants in her will. If you are OK with that, then go ahead and do it. If you are not OK with that, then both your grandma's estate and your father's estate need to be probated to get...Read more »
I do not know what "29" is, but wetland means you can do nothing with a generally defined area of the property. It sounds like TVA has run their easement very carefully. You may not wish to buy t he property. Or you might hire a competent attorney to conduct a title search, and possibly hire...Read more »
I bought land from an individual last year, I paid cash money & she ensured me that she could type of the deed. Me not really knowing the importance of the lawyer(but I do now !!) I said ok & she did so. I went to courthouse & filed it. 6 months later I decided to sell through a Realty company, Its... Read more »
You have not identified what your problems are. But I suspect access to the property and derivation of title will be definitely part of your title problems. This was not something to do without a lawyer. Even if you are able to sue for breach of warranties, it is doubtful it will actually help....Read more »

If the property was deeded to someone else, that other person owns the property. Adverse possession only applies if they don't consent to your occupancy of the property for 21 years. Here, they did consent for a time and the time they have not consented is not 21 years. You may consider asking if...Read more »
I have a room in my house that I would like to turn into a parlor for small performances of 10 to 20 people to do an hour long mentalism show. We would like to do the show, offer canned sodas, sealed snacks, and popcorn to the guests. It would be in the form of a small house party and would take... Read more »
One thing I love about law practice is that I keep learning new things 35 years after I started practice and about 29 years after I became a Virginia lawyer. Interesting Code section. A trip to a real library rather than the Internet version would get the history of the statute first enacted before...Read more »
I want to know if I can place a trailer on my property. It used to have a house there so it has gas and water and sewage hook ups. I’m not sure of the zoning but I would like to make this property into an asset instead of currently it being a burden.
Allowing a person to profit off land is usually not the same legal term as a sublet. For example, a legal "profit" off the land could be allowing someone to remove timber, minerals, or wild game off the land. It is more like an easement than a sublet.
I constantly struggle with my driveway washing out because of the poorly designed county road the water comes off the road goes straight down my drive washing it out every good rain in tired of spending my money they have no ditches or drainage in place can I hold them legally responsible for the...

Probably not. It does not appear to be an action in which you'd want to invest time and money. If the county road does not have features that suggest negligence in its design or construction, it would appear that there really wouldn't be a strong case there. A county road is not going to be held to...Read more »
Our deed and pictures showed 3.7 acres, with a creek and a waterfall. Well we had our property survided so that we could put a fence up. Well we just got our report and it only was surveyed at 2.4 acres. We feel we were misrepresented. Do we have any legal rights?
The Rookery Bay Aquatic Preserve acted in 1978 to restrict certain homes on Marco Island from having a dock more than 160 square feet. These homes are a very small percentage of the total number of homes on Marco and almost every home on Marco has a dock and a boat. The restriction placed on... Read more »
It looks to be more an equal protection issue than a 5th Amendment "Taking Clause" issue (and the comparable provisions of the Florida Constitution). Depending upon how much the regulation affects land values, it might be cost-effective to pursue.
Driveway. It’s fine if they are there 3-5 minutes, but I have a consistent woman who parks, leaves her car running and blocks the entire driveway for upwards of 10+ minutes. Even when there are spaces to park away from the driveway and no one is blocking her in; she chooses to block my driveway.... Read more »

Not if the structure will be in compliance with zoning and other laws, and the project is run in compliance with OSHA, environmental, labor, fire & safety, and other codes. Your question remained open for three weeks. Those are some general considerations. You could consult with an Indiana attorney...Read more »
How does it affect you? Is "fish processing" regulated in your location and are you arguably subject to such regulation? I see that you picked the "Land Use & Zoning" topic; if you don't think the zoning regulations apply to you, start by talking to a code enforcement officer and take it from...Read more »
I'm in the process of buying a piece of land and when looking over the aerial map and going out to the location it looks as though the existing neighbors has put a shed on the line if not over the property line. As a new owner can I say something about it?
