We had a verbal agreement to purchase the building and bought it together. It was not spelled out that we each own 1 duplex, that we each own half of the building. I paid for my half separately with funds from my LLC, wired to the seller and she did the same. I also pay half the utilities and rent separate from my partner.
There is also a problem with title to the building, which is a modular. I paid 100% of what was owed to the seller for my half of the building, plus delivery and setup fees. My partner did not have the funds to pay the remaining $4700 balance and made an agreement with the seller to pay it to when the building was rented. Then she inspected the building and found things she was not satisfied with and is using that as an excuse to not pay the remaining balance due. Because of this the seller is withholding title, which I have requested through an attorney, however the seller is not responding. So I don't even have title. Without title, can I file a petition suit? Taxes have been paid and building permits filed on the building.
It sounds like my partner needs to pay the contractor so that we can move on. A final question: the Purchase Agreement and Delivery and Setup agreements were separate agreements. My partner is claiming she does not need to pay the final payment in the Delivery and Setup agreement because she was not satisfied with the quality of the work performed. My stance is that the entire amount must be paid, and if my partner has issues with the workmanship, that must be addressed with the contractor afterwards, perhaps through a court claim.
