Once you close on the property the encroachment issues become your problem and expense to cure. The time to speak with an attorney about the potential issues and ramifications is now, before you close. Your agent cannot give you the kind of legal advice you need at this point in time.

Most states have laws regarding what is called adverse possession. If the neighbors sheds on this property have been there for a specific period of time (often 7 years) and meet the other criteria about hostile and open possession, the neighbors may actually be able to claim the land their sheds sit on as their own. As I said, talk to an attorney now, before you close so you know exactly what you are dealing with. Your husband is wrong, this has the potential to be a big issue.

The only way to determine approximately what someone owes is by noting the mortgage data in the tax record and doing an amortization on th eloan to get a rough idea of what their payoff may be. Only the owner knows for sure - they may have paid extra principal so it will be lower or they may be behind so it could be higher. ... more

You could just continue until the lease expires in November and not renew it with the current tenant (since the month-to-month is an option at your discretion). Your best venue however is to contact a real estate attorney and get their advice. Unless a respondent on Trulia is also a licensed attorney, we are unable to render any type of legal advice.
Hope this answer helps,,
Best wishes,

The short and simple answer is NO
as an individual, for sale by owner, you cannot on Trulia, here only Realtors, who have a listing and
it is posted on their multiple listing service are able and allowed to post their listings with photos here on the trulia site. As a for sale by owner you will have to find for sale by owner sites....

But then why are you selling on your own and not with the expertise and advertising and marketing powers of a local Realtor.... There are many reasons why you should.... and after trying to sell
on your own, you may still decide down the road to list with an experienced local Realtor.......
If at that time you need recommendations for a Realtor in your area, feel free to connect with me, and I would gladly forward several recommendations to you.

Good luck!
