The closing was held up for several days past the date due to the out of the country seller not getting some required forms over. The Buyer has to move on the day that was scheduled since his home Buyer is closing at the same time and moving into the buyers home. Also the Buyer is unable to reschedule his mover. What can be done to let the buyer into the property he is buying without actually turning over possession until the closing is completed? Could the Seller lease the buyer the property for a week - is this a good solution??

Several of us want to install solar panels on our

Several of us want to install solar panels on our condominium roofs, and the solar company tells us that if we sign to accept maintenance and repair responsibility in return for private use of the common property it should be sufficient. Also, our CC&R's already allow that agreement for the installation of satellite dishes on common walls, so I believe that is a defining precedent. But our HOA attorney insists that the HOA actually transfer ownership of the roof, which requires 2/3 vote by the homeowners in each and every case. We can't get that many to open their mail. Do you think it is possible to convince the attorneys that transfer of ownership is not necessary and that a one-time passage of a clause like we have now for the satellite dishes can apply to any homeowners who apply to the architectural committee and sign an acceptance of responsibility agreement?

We have an easement that runs through out land for ingress and egress. I was told, by a surveyor that we own the land in the easement, under the road, but do not own the road. He stated that it is common law that the road is owned by the property owners needing the easement to reach their lots.Is this true? Is it written somewhere and how can I find it?Vickie Humphrey
