Should I consider making an offer on the attached property, which is not for sale?The attached property is owned by an out-of-town owner, who purchased the property 5 years ago with no money down. This attached house's sewer line runs to the city-hookup through my property. This "double house" was built in the 1840's and both sides of this "duplex" have always been owned by the same person until 2000. I would like to own both sides of this "duplex/double house" and live in my current "half" and rent out the attached house. This situation is quite difficult to explain. I have consulted with a real estate agent, who has indicated I am in a good position to make an offer. Again, the house is not on the market and is currently renter occupied. I am wondering if the sewer line from the property next door is a factor that could encourage the owner to sell. He was not granted an easement for the sewer line. It is only a matter of time before his sewer hook-up to the city sewer system fails and must be replaced, etc. etc. I wonder if the sewer hook-up issue could be helpful in motivating the owner to sell. I can explain my situation and intentions much better if the forum could tell me what info. is needed to determine if I should consider making and offer and if I could use their sewer connection issue to motivate a sale and help determine the amount I offer.
