Purchasing property to build your dream home should be a pleasant experience. However, one must READ THE FINE PRINT to see what encroachments affect the property you are buying. Listed in the “reservations and exceptions to conveyance” was a small line item where it mentioned that a pipeline affected the property.  Buyer and Attorney both failed to know what this means or investigate this item and Buyer purchases property.  Buyer later finds out Buyer can’t build on property since pipeline affects a substantial portion of property. Just a friendly reminder that you should hire an attorney knowledgeable in real estate matters to represent you when buying property. It actually could save you money.
