We want to purchase land, so the past few days have been spent driving around looking at whatever is available. I found an interesting plot of land in Ardmore, Alabama. It is almost 5 acres and the price is very reasonable.
While we were looking at the land, the owner happened to arrive. She owns the land and some land adjacent to it that she plans to keep for herself. She is currently living on the adjacent land.
I didn’t have a problem with that part, but when she said her septic tank is located on the land that is being sold and she wants to retain rights to that tank I was a bit shocked.
I am not sure how you would even put that in a contract. I started having visions of drama with the neighbor over where everybody’s poop was going to be deposited and decided this was not the land for us.
