we have rented a house with the first contract stipulating that we would charge to refurbish house with supplies/materials to be reimbursed.
JA: Because real estate
law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: and that our labor was part of rent, all with the promise that house would be sold to us as first right. house failed inspection so I offered to buy as "property." but needed soil test to have septic put in..He refused and has not given us four weeks to move out. house is 115 years old, no septic, (we use an electric toilet). He is russian and does not either understand the law or is in need of fast cash. our realestate agent says he is asking too much, and we know that, but want to purchase at appraisal
rate. owner refuses to get appraisal and wont have soil test done, cost is 700.00 and only owner can get permit for test. owner gave us two options, pay him 30k in cash or move out by the 15th. Any recourse?
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: State of Virginia
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: my husband and I have our own business, handyman, improvements, etc.
