My question involves real estate located in the State of: Michigan
I have been searching for homes for sometime now and have found the perfect setup. However this home is a sold as is foreclosure. The home sits on 5 acres of land and has a VERY nice completey finished polebarn outbuilding. The land was surveyed which shows that the house I am interested in purchasing as well as a portion of the polebarn and a shed enchroaches a portion of land that is not part of the property I am interested in. My realtor has informed me of this and I have a copy of a survey that has recentely been done. The home was built in 1955 and Im not exactley sure why portion of the home as well as the outbuildings encroach. How could you screw this up? The encroachment is into a lane or street that does not yet exsist and is merely just a dirt path for the neighbor and I to gain access to the homes. My realtor said that in the future if a road was to be constructed the polebarn would have to be moved or destroyed. This is the only thing that scares me about buying this property. Is there anything I could do prior to purchasing this? Would it be ok to purchase and deal with the issure down the road? Here is a picture of the survey, micheles ave which (does not yet exsist yet) is what is encroached.
