Good Morning

My apology for the delay I was away from my desk.

Is the agreement in writing and if so what does it say about sale of the land?

Do they have a copy of the papers and have they given you a copy?

Is your brother prepared to give evidence on what the agreement between you and him was, I assume he was the previous land owner?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
