A home on our street was torn down and a new home was started but only got as far as framing the house, then the progress stopped 2 years ago. The owner lives in Florida (this home is in Colorado) and the owner's son is homeless and has schizophrenia camps in the backyard. Other homeless... Read more »
I want to purchase land in Tennessee on a mountain where the drive to the property is a few miles of gravel road put in by the land developer. The road is NOT county maintained. The title company has heard the developer plans to file bankruptcy and is no longer maintaining the roads.... Read more »
Title Insurance only covers a few problems, and never ensures that the access is maintained. Many Title problems that may arise are not insured risks. And making a valid claim on a policy is very difficult. Have you searched the Title yet, or even actually read the legal description and...Read more »
No legal description of the encumbered property must be recorded with the legal description. However some type of notice to the world where the restrictions apply should be of record, as otherwise the covenants will be worthless and unenforceable. Hire a competent attorney to at least draft a...Read more »
Have you tried talking to the police? Unfortunately, there is not allot that can be done for an annoying neighbor. At a certain point, it could be a nuisance but is it worth the time and money? It's a hard one.
Please be aware that any answer is based on all the events occurring in...Read more »
The owner of the property on which the retaining wall is located. The exact position of the wall should be shown on the survey of the property. Any questions about the construction should be addressed to the municipal building inspector.

advance, I checked the plans that often. Then BOOM, they are bulldozing across the street and I get told one day “that is not an office building across the street they are building—it’s gonna be a hotel!”
A Wisconsin attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Electric utilities nationwide have broad authority when it comes to protecting and maintaining their transmission infrastructure, including removing trees and other hazards that could ice, bring down cables, and...Read more »
Town. We want to divide the land and register our parcel separately. How can we accomplish this? Can this transaction happen directly from seller to the two new buyers with each buyer claiming their part of the land? Or does it have to be registered under one person and then be separated? Need... Read more »
The property must be segregated by way of a deed. Although this can be accomplished in the sales deed, you cannot segregate a property without procuring required legal permits beforehand. The quickest, most expedient way I recommend would be for you and your sister purchase the land and register it...Read more »
This is a complex question. You should contact an attorney.
If you own a property, you have a right to fence it provided you do not run afoul of any covenants, HOA, zoning, ordinances, and/or other laws. In certain rural areas in Colorado, you may be required to fence it.
They found a descendant of the original land owner and they are willing to negotiate. Our grandparents have always said they owned the land, did all the upkeep, paid all of the taxes, and everything that comes with it. Is there any documentation I should be looking for? Is there a way to prove it... Read more »
We have an adjacent neighbor whose driveway has two exit points: at one end onto a main road which is what they are supposed to be using, the other end onto our church parking lot and then onto a side road. Part of the driveway that leads to our parking lot crosses over part of our property. The... Read more »
Yes and no on the ownership. If you write to them and tell them to stop, that cuts off any ownership issues. You can legalize the driveway through your land by doing what it called an easement. It is a recorded document, like a deed, that states that the driveway is for access but subject to...Read more »
I just finished building my new home. In front of my house a man is bringing in a trailer park. There is going to be 5 trailers in a 2.5 acre lot. This will make my value of the home go down can I sue for making my resale value go down. I had no idea this was going to happen or I would have not... Read more »
You might check the Zoning of the Tract for compliance. Septic Systems for 5 MHs on a couple acres might be a problem. If in violation, call the County. Or there may be a change in zoning going on now where you oppose it. You definitely want to check Access to that Tract, which may directly...Read more »
The paper road is woods and swamp, not even a path or dirt road exists. It probably could not be made into a road because of water table. It was platted over 70 years ago. Does the town own the land or just hold a ROW for the property? The other roads in the neighborhood are paved and maintained... Read more »
A paper road remains the town's property even if the town does nothing with it. The town does not have to build a road on it in order to keep it as a paper road. The town retains the option to build a road on the area of the paper road at any time in the future.
We do not know how to approach them with this. Their carport and all of their yard on the side of their house is my property. Do I offer to sell? Do I need to go ahead and file charges for trespassing? We do have no trespassing signs.
That appears to be a Boundary Dispute. Hire a LA attorney to search both adjoining owners titles. The common boundary may need a Survey, where the Surveyor would be your prospective witness. Then file suit to Determine the Boundary. This is difficult and expensive, but if you do nothing, you...Read more »
