14 Questions Answered

Q. The property is in carbon county Albrightsville
A: Generally speaking, the process would require a legal filing in the Court of Common Pleas in Carbon County. The action would be filed against the current owner of the parcel that you are seeking to acquire, and possibly others. If the process is not contested you can expect the process to last at least a few months. If the action is contested by the current owner, and discovery may be necessary to determine the rights of the parties, the process could take up to a year or more as it works its way through the court process. It is recommended that you retain an attorney to assist you with the preparation of the documents necessary. This is not intended to provide specific legal advice to you, or anyone else, and is only a general description of what may be required. You may feel free to contact me if you would like more information.
Q. Property maintained solely for 30 years can someone just take it off me?
A: There is a concept known as "adverse possession" which, under the right circumstances, grants title to real estate to those who have maintained it for 21+ years. However, the rules are very particular and would also need to be asserted in court. I also have questions about the nature of the property (urban vs. rural) and whether the local municipality is the current owner. We are willing to speak with you regarding this situation. If we believe your facts would support such a claim (or there is some other remedy available), we would consider representing you. You can reach me at epappas@tuckerlaw.com. Sincerely, Evan Pappas
Q. Can you be a renter living in Maryland, but buy/invest in a property in Pennsylvania?
A: Yes, you may own real estate in Pennsylvania as an out-of-state resident. Feel free to contact us if you would like assistance in the process. We can also help with the real estate closing and offer title insurance for the purchase once you decide which property to purchase.
