Some people believe that good fences make good neighbors. It's a proverb that dates back to the mid-17th century. Robert Frost used it as a refrain in his poem, "Mending Fences," though Frost appears to have meant the opposite -- that boundaries are actually what alienate us. Nevertheless, when a boundary, such as a neighbor's fence, falls on the wrong side of the property line, it's one of the primary real estate issues that homeowners encounter across the country, including here in Tennessee.
Finding the right location to rent for a business here in Nashville probably took some time. Now, the owner is anxious to get through the formalities and get into the space. The problem is, accepting the first draft of a commercial lease from the property owner could cause issues in the future for a prospective tenant.
Searching for the right residential or commercial piece of land here in Nashville can take some time. Even individuals looking for residential property may run into issues with zoning and land use if they are looking for a piece of property that does not already have a home on it. Depending on the purpose for which the property will be used, these issues could interfere with a smooth real estate transaction.
