On Hold

We spoke to the owners of the adjacent land last Sunday.

Their meeting with their attorney is scheduled for Wednesday, May 29.

As of this writing, we have not heard anything from the seller’s agent about the resuslts of the meeting.

In the meantime, the online search for alternative property will resume.

Update: May 22 – the owners of the lot we are trying to buy received a notice from the lawyer of the owner of the adjoining lot giving notice that they intend to dispute the use of a certain portion of the road which, according to documents filed in 1993 when the lots were established, is to be shared – in whole – by both lots. This comes on the heels by an offer of the owner of the adjoining lot to build, at his expense, a road that would parallel a portion of the shared road into “our” property. We’re assuming he abandoned that plan after finding out just how expensive it would be to do – we’re talking building on a steep dropoff populated by a stream.

Update: June 6 – We are no longer waiting for this issue to resolve. We purchased a 2.5 acre plot in Powhatan County on June 5. While not as “roomy” as the Louisa property, this parcel has plenty of charm.

It is half wooded and half pasture. The wooded half backs up to a neighboring pond. It is on the wooded half where we will build the house. I plan to have some pictures of the lot posted soon.
