    Default Right of First Refusal

    My question involves real estate located in the State of: New York

    I own a home that has a carriage house owned by a different party. The property was probably split 15 +years ago. We bought the house 7 years ago and the carriage house was already owned by the current owner. There is an easement on my driveway that allows her to use it for access to her property. The house has been basically abandoned for about 4 years because of legal battles with contractors.

    When I bought my house there was a right of first refusal clause in my contract in case i ever sold the property. I have recently found out she is selling her property. I assume(bad thing to do) that in her contract there is a right of first refusal that needs to be exercised for the owner of the front house(currently me). If that is truly the case, what options do i have if I was never approached and she sold her house to another party?

    If you know she's selling the house and choose to sit on your hands, you should not expect that you'll have any remedy against her after the sale goes through (assuming you even have a "right of first refusal".)
