Customer Question
Hello. I have...

Hello. I have a question about a Right-of-Way Grant by the Bureau of Land Management on an access road to a property & home we would like to purchase in Chaffee County, CO. This was just disclosed to us after we signed a purchase agreement and we are seeing a lot of red flags here because we don't understand all of the ramifications.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Colorado

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

We signed a purchase agreement for the property before we knew about the BLM Grant.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I said what I know in the first message.

Please allow me several minutes to read your facts and type my response both initially and when you add a follow up question or add facts. Please don't ask "are you there", "where is my answer", etc., since when you post it can erase what I am working on. If we are having a conversation unless I tell you I am going offline, I will be here but I may be doing research.

I have read and understand your facts, is there a specific question with which I could assist?

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.
