Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered

Q. My neighbor is threatening to sue me over water drainage issues that I believe are self-inflicted. Should I worry?
A: Responsibility for the run-off will depend upon a lot of factors. Understanding your legal rights and responsibilities in this situation before it escalates further would most likely save you time, money and aggravation. A real estate lawyer will be able to advise you further.
Q. Is it possible to terminate a vacant land offer to purchase if the seller did not provide a map of the property by date
A: Whether you can terminate the Offer will depend on the terms of the contingency contained in the Offer. Oftentimes there are time limits for both the Seller's compliance with the terms, and the time period in which a Buyer is permitted to terminate. Prompt review of the Offer would be best to preserve your rights.
