We are in eastern Washington if that makes any difference.

Thank you for any insight you can give us!
Since you will be retaining a real estate attorney this would be a perfect question to ask him/her. I would much prefer getting professional advice from a professional that I am paying and trust than get advice from anonymous people on the internet.
