Advice on Easement or Buying Lot in Oakland
Hi- I'm in Oakland and live next door to an empty lot. I'm interested in buying part of the lot to get more yard space. (I don't think we can afford the full lot.) Does anyone have experience with buying part of a lot? Is it possible to only buy part, and does it need city approval? Or, have you gotten easement rights before- and if so, what happens if they decide to sell the lot, do we lose the easement? Finally, can you recommend any lawyers who can negotiate this (we have the contact information for the lot owners but don't know them. We would have to approach them to buy.) Thanks in advance!
