Congratulations!  Best feeling ever 🙂 But as a real estate agent in training I just learnt that not having the correct measurements on the listing is a big no-no.  I’m glad she only countered back $3000.

I’m glad it worked out for you but I wouldnt buy that house. You never know when the owner of the other property might change his mind and tell you he wants you to take down the fence. Also, when he eventually passes away that land will go up for sale and you won’t have any right to the land that the previous owner got permission to use. If you don’t care about somone owning land right up to your back porch, then I guess it’s ok. That’s not something I’d be ok with though.

That’s great that it worked out. You may want to consider having the fence removed so you have a clear land title. You could run into problems if you have to pay for the easement for the fence.

Yes, I agree that you need to ensure everything is clear and legal before offically taking ownership.  Perhaps you should talk to your agent tonight about that prior to signing the paperwork.  Does the current owner have a real property report (that’s what they’re called in Canada, not sure about other countries.)
