“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Leviticus 19:18.
In the world of real estate litigation, however, not everyone abides by this commandment.
During this holiday season, as we celebrate miracles and pray for peace, I offer the following wish:
Love your neighbor, landlord, tenant, easement holder, servient estate owner, licensee, trespasser, adverse possessor, condominium trustee, homeowner’s association, planning board, zoning enforcement officer, health inspector, building department, conservation commission, architectural commission, assessor, public works department, home improvement contractor, real estate developer, surveyor, harbormaster, state agency, title examiner, insurance company, tree warden, fence viewer, judge, clerk’s office, court officer, and all persons engaged in trade or commerce.
And if your heart will allow, then love your lawyer too!
