The Law of Adverse Possession
By Pennsylvania law, if someone has been occupying the land for an extended period of time (in this case 20 years) without any other asserted legal ownership of the property you may have the right by law to obtain a deed, making you the owner of the property. The real estate attorneys of Pennsylvania have helped clients gain sole ownership of land that have been in this situation or condition.
Real Estate Transactions Gone Wrong
Not all real estate transactions proceed smoothly; with so much complicated and complex legal documentation, and appropriate concerns as to conditions of the property it can lead to many buying and selling processes going wrong. There are plenty of things that can go wrong throughout real estate transactions such as financing falling through, or nondisclosure of problems found in the home. When finalizing the sale, the buyer and seller can terminate the deal prior to closing if any contingencies are not fulfilled. This may include any damages or financial harm discovered during home inspection, which can ultimately result in unaccounted for expenses for the buyer. By having legal representations during any real estate transaction it will provide security and advice for any hiccups along the way.
