There's a small piece of land that is part of the legal description of the tri-plex that is adjacent to the east side lot. Physically, when you look at the piece of land, it looks like its part of the neighbor's backyard! I do not have access to it because there's a fence.
If the neighbor tries to claim this land and gets it, I'm in trouble. I need to PROTECT my rights to this property, since without it, I don't have the necessary square footage to be legal for a 3-plex. Our attorney recommended an "estoppel certificate". I will contact my title company on Monday to make arrangements.
Fortunately, the owner of the adjacent pience of land is a nice guy and understands the situation. He is willing to cooperate and sign any necessary documents.
