Bought land which was sold - Any advice?
I bought 2 acres in Gravenhurst which was supposed to be "severed" from a larger 110 acre parcel. However, the owner of the land strung me along and ended up selling the whole property before starting the land severence process. The 2 acres was never severed and I did not get a deed to the property. We did fill and sign an Agreement of Purchase from the OREA on January 2018. The owner of the property has failed to return my money and has discontinued to communicate with me. No, I did not use a Real Estate lawyer for this process and I have learned my lesson. I'm wondering if anyone here has been in this situation before and if it would be worth pursuing a lawyer. The property is located just outside of Gravenhurst near a small abondoned village called Lewisham and I paid $10,850 for 2 acres.
I couple of questions: Do I legally have rights to 2 acres of this property even though I don't have a deed and the property has been sold? Would the cost to hire a lawyer be worth pursuing?
Thanks in advance for your advice. Have a great day!
