Thank you for your input.
The problem is my uncle has already sold his interest to an outsider and now we are dealing with him.
I talked things over with my brother last night after posting this and we agreed to offer the guy something
even without having cash up front.
We do have an attorney and have been fighting this for almost 2 years now. I must say the attorney has done
a good job dragging this out in our attempts to force the guy to just give up, although I haven’t been 100%
satisified with the attorney. However, he was the only one we found whom this willing to help and fight it.
The others all said we had no chance, give in to the guy and make the best business deal we could.
So, anyway I will make an offer, etc. One more thing,
last July they sued us in court for partition BEFORE this guy bought theland, the judge then said he wasn’t going to partition the land. The guy turned around and bought my uncles 1/2 interest anyway and we are back into partition court.
A couple real estate agents have told me that the judge
should have to allow us the first chance to buy the land should the court put it up for sale since we are senior owners in the land. Obviously, with knowing we’d
have the money for sure we don’t want this to happen if possible.
My credit isn’t that great. I have some charge offs and
a couple overdue credit cards. One card keps turing it in to a different collection agency. I’ve paid the thing twice, in full, according to the agreement and the credit card company will claim I owe them more and turn in. Now they claim I oew 257 more after paying them over $800.00 on a 200 dollar bill.
So, I will take your suggestions and thanks again.
