Hey everyone, quick question, I recent bought a piece of land in which the parcel number states that an well is going to be share among 8 lots but the well is a great distant form my lot. My question is being that the water right and well agreement does not state or mention that owner may or may not have the right to put a well on their lot . May I or may I not move forward with placing my own well with out the consisted of the rest of the lot owners when in fact I will be running with all the cost my self?

Thank you for your input. Have a great Day.

Hate to say this, but this is something you definitely should have researched before you bought the property.

I'm curious. I've never seen a parcel number state where a well is. Or is not. I agree with the above poster. You should probably sell as you are probably screwed. Probably cannot put in a septic either. And your road is either washed out now or will be soon, just wait until the monsoon season. And/or just a boulder field. Then in the winter, there will be a lot of snow and no snowplow.


Don't forget that Arizona is a terribleā„¢ place either. Most folks around here go strapped.

Yeah...sounds like a bad deal. What is the depth up there for a well? 600'? Then you have to ask if you are a water rights holder or if someone else owns that water. Sounds like a headache to me.

Hey Teddy, how's life in the miserable frozen north of AZ? I see you haven't been gored by a rabid deer and the bears and cougars infesting the forest haven't gotten you yet.

OP - this is one you need to run past a local real estate attorney. Also I would talk to the county building and zoning depts.

I "think" your deed should disclose mineral and water rights. Water rights might be a separate recorded document. It may show water rights, but not say you have rights to that well. If you do, run a pipe from the well (check for easements) otherwise you can water haul from the well (? maybe). If you have unrestricted water rights you can drill a well. But how deep is your water table? Wells in No AZ can run a couple thousand... or a couple of HUNDRED thousand.

Did you get a perk test?

Thank you, for that information, this is very helpful to know.

In fact I have not got a perk test yet.

The perk test is the first thing anyone should do before buying property in this area. It is one huge lava field from Eagar to Snowflake and south into the rez. Lots of rock.

First, it's Holbrook, not Holbrooke...

I already created a thread about Holbrook, and the possibility of it being the 3rd largest Arizona city by 2100:

It's one of my all-time favorite places to visit, but it's a real shame that nothing has been built so far at this great location.
