Legal Answers
8 Questions Answered

Q. Rent to own contract question
A: I agree with Fred, but further, if the agreement was prepared in accordance with Maine's land installment contracts law, they can't simply evict you. I would suggest having an attorney review the agreement to clarify your rights.
Q. What are the rules about people walking on a beach that's owned by a private landowner?
A: If there are no easement rights to walk on the beach or any other basis for permission, then it is essentially trespassing. You need to be sure that the beach is part of the land that is owned, and that should be provided for in the property deed. No Trespassing signs can be posted, and even fencing to block access.
Q. I am in a lease/option contract. The owner and I have found a buyer and is under a contract. Doesn't that void mine?
A: More information is needed to really answer this question. The contract would need to be reviewed to determine if it was valid to begin with, or if there has been a breach. Depending on the problem with the title, it may not be worth exercising your option right now.
