Fast forward to the end of our first week. I have now met all my neighbors, every one is cool, we have all of our stuff unpacked, and furniture set up. I see someone pull a truck up the drive (who I do not recognize as my neighbor) and the garage door is open. I'm shocked to see that it is still full of tools and equipment. So I asked him if he was the previous owner coming to pick up his stuff. He then claims that the garage is his and that he is part owner with my neighbor, but doesn't live there. We are both totally confused at this point, so we decide to call our realtors and figure out what happened.
His realtor comes by with all of the paperwork and we talk it over. It turns out that not only does the neighbor own the garage, but the entire driveway. The driveway isn't even shared at all. The realtor pointed out that on the official city documents it says "carport" not garage. My yard access, garage and property value just fell big time.
My question to the community is what kinds of compensation should I be looking for from my realtor?
