Purchasing a Bug Out Location is a perfect example of a property that can be placed at the muzzle end of a “legal firing squad”

Not only will you purchase a property that you may not be too familiar with, but you also will not be able to manage the property as well as a local resident of the area.

Avoid These Common Legal Nightmares on Your Property

Because of the reduced management and amount of items that can cause you a headache, you should take the time to cover your behind.  Here are a few legal items to avoid when you purchase land.

(Note: I AM NOT AN ATTORNEY AND DO NOT GIVE LEGAL ADVICE, this is only for personal information, always check with your laws.)

What rights you have, and actions you should take when improving leased land.

Home Owners Associations

Government in its lowest form.  Always opt-out.

Don’t Get Stuck in These Situations

Avoid any of these items when purchasing a property.  The items I listed are actually the most common cases brought to court, so obviously, are a big issue.

Just knowing that these problems exist and what they are should help you identify them and, hopefully, avoid them.
