    Default Building A Home, Neighbor Wants More Money

    I purchased a plot of land from a neighbor and proceeded to build a home on it. I had all the inspections done as I was putting in the foundation, and everything was okayed by the inspectors. (this was more than a year ago) I have been halted on my work on my new home (which has walls and a roof now.) as my neighbor decided to complain. He claims that the front corner of my home is 4 feet away, but the back corner is 9 inches too close to his property line. (zoning laws salt lake county, utah state the home should be 4 feet from the property line) He is now demanding that I buy his home for an outrageous amount of money in order for him to stop his complaints against me. I can't afford to pick up and move, and I can't sell because the home isn't even done. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I do have legal counsel... but all he has said so far is make sure that I don't say anything negative about the guy.

    The first thing you should do with your lawyer it take your boundary survey that you ordered before you bought the property and walk the boundary lines with your lawyer, pointing out the stakes.

    Report back with results.
