What I would like to get hold of is the book that is handed out in the real estate school classes–covering the rules and regs. of that particular state.
(I still have mine from PA but want to see what is applicable to Fla.)
I called the local County Board of Realtors—said that what they had available was only for the realtors ($250).
Orlando Assn. of Realtors didn’t have anything and didn’t know the name of it.
I got a frantic call on Friday from my neighbor (Dick) who lives directly behind my property. About 4 of us use an access road that runs along my pasture fence. It is owned solely by one resident. The owner suddenly has a bug up her butt (the feuding McCoys!) and now intends to fence off her property, INCLUDING the road, which will deny everybody access to it. I think 3 out of 4 of us do have a second exit from our properties to the street except for poor Dick. This is his only one and he has been using her road for over 20 years.
He DOES own 20 feet along my fenceline which is a ditch (for “runoff’) – HOWEVER, his waterline is (I think) 18” under the surface.
He would have to spend considerable $$ to make a road. We all got letters this past Friday from her lawyer and we have 3 weeks to act.
P.S. At the owner’s written request, we have also helped to pay for the maintenance (over the years) on this road.
I think I still have her letter.
I was reading up on prescriptive easements, emminent domain, etc. but would like to research it in a Fla. ‘rule’ book.
Thanks if anyone knows the name of the book!
