LOOKING FOR A LAWYER WHO LOVES HORSES

May 9, 2009 | By Denise H. | 2 comments

Our property was purchased specifically for the purpose of giving homes to horses from Habitat for Horses. The seller’s lied about the property flooding and we have lost two horses to the yard since Aug. 08. One drowned in his stall and the other had to be put to sleep due to arthritis that escalated due to a muddy yard over the winter. Under the road beside our home is a pipe that collects all the water south of our home and dumps it in our yard. I need a pro bono, because we paid cash for the house and we have empties our bank account on vet bills, backhoes to bury horses and materials for french drains. The County Commissioner finally admits we will never be able to fix this problem. I want the contract rescinded and the seller’s sued for the barn, fence and materials purchased to try to fix the yard. I want them to understand the horses had horrible lives before they were rescue and I brought them to a yard that killed them. They misrepresented the property, which to me is a breach of contract and fraudulent actions.

Please help me, get the horses to a safer place to live. We have a surveillance camera on the barn because the seller’s purchased the land from the neighbors who keep watching us putting in french drains. The seller’s have family in Brashear and I fear for the dogs and our horses. We found a decapitated rabbit in Moose’s stall 4/17. Today 5/9 we had another run in with them because they were in their car watching us working in the yard. Police were called.

I've been working on this since October 2008. There is no help available for us. From the Governor to our State Senators, no one has any way to help us. Go figure......I mean where are my tax dollars going. I live in TX too. I loved this state because we were always ready to help everyone and when it comes to helping it's own residents they can't do a thing.

Denise you are going to need a real estate lawyer in your state. You can start by going online and contacting your state bar and seeing what they have available to you. Many states have programs through the bar where attorneys donate their time pro bono. Additionally, you can see if you can find an attorney that will take your can on a contingency fee basis. Usually that will run about 40% of whatever the total recovery is. It is a good deal though if you don't have any money up front. You won't have to pay anything but if you win or settle the attorney will receive 40% off the top. Good Luck. Kelli
