I know, I have gone AWOL, but I have not forgotten Foo! My search for a house is full-speed ahead, and I actually have to work-- at WORK!
Ok, So I found a really cute house yesterday. Brought my mom to look at it with my Realtor- and my mom was freaking about a really big tree (which appeared to be in the neighbor's yard, but very close to the lot line) that extended over nearly the entire house I was looking at. She's afraid if it fell down in a storm, it would be a real PITA on my homeowners. Not to mention kill me. I have a call into my insurance agent, but I'm curious about the experiences of Foo.
- If the tree is in the neighbors yard, aren't they at-fault if it falls on my house?
- If the tree is in the neighbor's yard, do I have any say in cutting off the branches over my house, or do they have to agree, because they "own" the tree?
- Is this legitimate, or ridiculous to be thinking about? Making this house-buying decision is hard without the dad of arti, who knew everything and was very level-headed. Mother Arti worries, nit-picks and freaks out about everything. I've got a few family friends I plan to take with for a second opinion, though.
