I was told that a 99 year lease is treated differently in PA and is almost like a sale. The man that wrote the lease was caretaker for his mother. One attorney said the lease is binding. I am hearing from other people no way. Under these circumstances and after spending $5000. am I ok to stay on the land? Must I have someone from the man's family go to the county . I doubt they will .They have no problem with us being there. We paid the taxes so it would not go to sheriff's sale. They do not want to deal with the problems.
