We live in Henderson, Nevada (Clark County) and own a condo. There was a detached garage for sale in the same complex by the owner who lives above us and we offered to purchase the detached garage. It was sold to us by a bill of sale, but nothing further. We know and trust the seller, but want to legally transfer the garage over to our deed.A few notes. The HOA CCR's do allow for the sale of the garage and we have received confirmation of this from the management. The garage doesn't have a separate parcel number from the unit.The question is how do we do two things 1) Amend the deed of the current owner to remove the garage from his deed 2) Add the garage to our deed. As well, what forms are needed to make this happen? Lastly, who do ask to assist us in this process to make sure it's done right. Title companies won't touch it because it doesn't have a parcel number, and the local recorder's office won't offer any advice.Thanks in advance

We are looking at a piece of rural property to build a home.

We are looking at a piece of rural property to build a home. In order to access the property, we have to travel a short distance down a private road owned by the adjoining property. We have been told by the seller that there is a right of way and that the owner of the road maintains the road. However, when we looked at the seller's deed, there is no mention of this right of way. If this right of way exists, where would it be documented and how can we assure it does exist?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Sorry, West VirgigniaJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: I'm not sure I understand the question.

I have a corner lot with a home and a large backyard in a

I have a corner lot with a home and a large backyard in a subdivision. I installed a fence that encompasses a large portion of my property; however, I did leave about 30 yards X 70 yards of land without any fencing. The unfenced area has a storage building that I have to use quite often. The only access to that part of my property would be driving on to my neighbor's property. My neighbor hasn't said anything to me yet, but I am getting long stares and looks. Do I have a defense in using his property as my own. Thanks, KevenJA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: NoneJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
