Customer Question
I own a residential property...
I own a residential property that the house burnt down by the proposed buyers negligence (and is a serious danger area). They have made a down payment but escrow has not closed. In the mean time the proposed buyers went to the sheriff and showed them the receipt for the down payment, and the sheriff has instructed me not to enter that property or I would be trespassing, since the proposed buyers are legal owners. What can I do to get an order ?? to prevent them from entering onto my property, until escrow has closed.

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.
