My question involves real estate located in the State of: Oregon
Hello, I am half owner of a house. My Mother and her husband have both passed on and the house was left half to me and half to his daughter.
She wanted to buy me out. She wrote up a contract , presented it to the title company that she was paying me with down payment and then payments over 2.5 years for the house as is. We both signed the agreement and it is at the title company alltho the final paper was not yet drawn up.
She has gone ahead and proceeded to fix up the house. Spent $20,000 on it. She has now changed her mind and says that I need to pay half of the fixing up. But, that was not in the original agreement. She now wants to sell the house but not start the agreement of payment to me until the house sells. No money has been given to me. She wants to back out of the contract.
We have both signed the agreement for the sale and it is at the title company so alltho it is not notarized wouldnt the title company be witness to this document?
Can she back out now ??? Or will this document that we both signed hold up in court? She is allready in breach as I have recieved no money as of yet. The first payment was supposed to be May 1st.
