My wife's mother is trying to return our money and keep the property we have purchased from her. We put a lot of work into it.We haven't spent a lot of money but we have spent 7 years of hard work making home. now over a petty personal issue she wants to call the deal off. We have not transferred anything yet can we obtain the land and home or should we just move on?
I suggest you speak with a lawyer directly. You generally need a written agreement for the transfer of property, but you might have some options. You need to speak with an attorney in your area. No one can give you specific advice based on such limited information. I wish you the best.
Even though Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, it must be clear that any answers are based on limited information and particular circumstances may influence any direct advice. Any information is given strictly for guidance to seek independent legal advice.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals. Attorneys who claim their profiles and provide Avvo with more information tend to have a higher rating than those who do not.What determines Avvo Rating?Experience & background
