Contract for Deed in Iowa to purchaser property. Dispute

Contract for Deed in Iowa to purchaser property. Dispute that even though purchaser accepted property in AS-IS condition under contract that purchaser claims they did not receive a disclosure about a defect in the foundation that was behind a wall and refuses to make further payments under the contract, but also refuses to release possession to Seller until Seller either refunds all payments made under the contract or pays for the repair.Is an action to terminate the contract due to non-payment likely to be successful, or can the foundation defect dispute drag out the action? What is likely to happen in this scenario if seller refuses to meet demands of a full refund or to pay for the repair? What is likely to happen if purchaser simply does not make payments and does not begin any actual legal action? Can the contract fail and does the purchaser have a right to demand rent if contract fails?

I have a question about a property dispute in New Mexico. My

I have a question about a property dispute in New Mexico. My family and I originally owned 5.93 acres and a house on 1.09 acres for the past 30+ years since 1989. We have a brick home and a chain link fence around the borders of the house that has been there for over 20+ years. We decided to sell the land 5.93 acres to a buyer in 2011. He bought the land, that was surveyed with a certain description. We had the chain link fence up and there was no problem. Then in 2013, the buyer sold (owner financing) the land to another buyer (3rd owner) with the surveys and boundaries set in 2010. Now fast forward 2016, the 3rd owner had a private survey done in March 2016 without our knowledge sent us a letter saying our chain link fence is encroaching on his property by 3 feet on the North and East sides. He has sent us a letter to have us remove our fence in 30 days.My questions is, does adverse possession apply in this case in our favor, we have had our fence for more than 20 years, if there was a property line problem wasn't it up to the 2nd buyer to dispute it with us in 2013, and we have been paying property taxes on the "disputed 3 feet of land for more than 30 years," don't we own that area now??Thank youMelissa Molina

We are the home buyers in CA. Our sellers had the dispute with

We are the home buyers in CA. Our sellers had the dispute with the neighbor about the tree roots after we signed the contract with them. Seller's tree roots are affecting the neighbor's yard .We haven't signed the escrow yest and just want to cancel the deal and want to receive our deposit.Are we eligible to do that? What legal papers should be sent to the seller in terms to have the clear reason why we want to cancel the deal?We do not want to be involved in any communications with the neighbors, because we are not owners of the property yet. But the seller's realtor says that we should contact the neighbor..Please advise.Sincerely,Dr. Glibicky

We have had two surveys done showing that two

***** *****. We have had two surveys done showing that two retaining walls come onto our property 2 ft. and 1 ft. respectively. The first survey was done in 2006 and just a few days ago for the second. There is a piece of their property locked into this area that they refuse to put steps from one wall so that they can maintain this small piece of their property (25 x 25 ft) so they continuously come onto our property to access it. It wasn't a big problem until recently when they started contracting landscapers to mow their lawn and they come over onto our property with their commercial mowers. My question: Can my neighbor get an easement just because he does not want to take steps to be able to access his property?JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: We have tried numerous time to speak to them about coming to a resolution but the last time the wife blasted me for about 15 minutes on her doorstep for being a kindless neighbor trying to cause problems.JA: OK got it.
