Hi, I am thinking of purchasing a home in Colonia, NJ but the problem is that about 5 years ago, the neighbor built a retaining wall on the seller's property when they installed a new pool. The seller was OK with it and so it was a verbal agreement between the two. The wall is 10ft long and 2ft into the seller's property. What are my options going forward or should I pass on the property? Thanks for your help.

More than you being OK, your title company may not be ok with an encroachment on your property. The Title Co. will most likely survey the property. Ask your Lawyer.
