Do I need a real estate attorney

Asked about 2 years ago - Lake Saint Louis, MO

sign papers to buy home but when I saw that the survey posts my yard was gone and told it was all common ground behind the stakes and a creek. I was told by realator that my property went back another 100 feet to creek which was told was common ground, not that my whole back yard was common ground. I bought the house because of the yard I thought was mine. I am suppose to sign all the papperwork on may 22, 2012. can I get out of this? thanks

    Answered . If you can establish that you were misled about the extent of the property and you reasonably relied on the information, you should be able to get out of the deal. I recommend that you consult a good real estate attorney immediately (before 5/22) to see what can be done.
