Did the seller indemnify you? Did they warrant good title? If so, you should be okay because any title problem will become their problem - i would direct the haters to your seller.
If not, you need to go through the state abandonment act. Just because you have a bill of sale doesn’t mean you bought it legitimately.
This issue is making some good progress. The seller’s title was actually pending. She agreed to help me in anyway possible to transfer the title. If all fails, I will start the abandonment process again and apply for title.
What happened with the troublemaker(s) though?
He’s still there. He won’t go away until I obtain title. Then it will be the end of this story.
The home is super distressed. He’s not making money from it, he can’t live in it. I don’t know why he’s holding on to it honestly. It’s a losing game for him as he does not own the land.
