By signing a well agreement, I was owed 5000.00.
It involved a third neighbor trading an easement for hookup. The first neighbor was responsible for all costs and is reneging. The 1st neighbor also made an unauthorized hookup. I am suing for another 16,000.00. Which was the amount that would have been levied had he not followed through with the 2nd neighbor by the contract. Total 21,000.00
A contract is a manifestation of intent to be presently bound supported by contractual prerequisites offer, acceptance, and consideration. All contracts involving complex subject matter should be reduced to writing. Contracts involving resources on land, i.e. water and wells, should be written. Written contracts are easier to prove and enforce compared to unwritten contracts. You don’t mention whether your agreements are in writing. If there has been a breach, what does the contract say about your remedies? You mention the suit. What’s the end game on this? You should consider hiring counsel to evaluate options and strategy. It’s best to do this early. Best of luck.
