Re: lemon house

Dear Allana: So sorry to hear of your problems. I believe you are entitled to terminate your Rent-to-Own or Land contract Agreement, depending upon the specific terms of the contract you signed. In so doing you may have to abandon any equity, but you may also be entitled to recover the cost of all of the improvements and repairs you have made, providing you can document your costs, etc.

You will need the assistance and advice of a real estate attorney to assist and advise you. Contact one ASAP.

Good luck.

Sincerely, J. Norman Stark, Cleveland, Ohio.
