can a virginia civil court have jurisdiciton over subject matter that is located in north carolina? the case involves a modular home that was purchased in virginia and delivered and set up in north carolina. the seller did not disclose the fact that the home was built as a ''model home'' only and never intended to be inhabited by human beings. the buyer can not get a certificate of occupancy. the seller is suing the buyer for specific performance because the buyer refuses to pay for a home that can not be lived in. the land is co-owned and only one land owner signed the contract to buy the house. the seller amended the suit to include the co-owner of the land over removal of the home (located in north carolina.) co-owner is resident of nc but filed answer to complaint. (i did question the jurisdiction of the virginia court in my answer) i think i already gave up my claim to personal jurisdiction but what about the fact that the home is located in nc ? wouldn't that mean nc would have jurisdiction over the subject matter?
