One hour before closing I signed an addendum to remove tires from the property. There were about 6 to 8tires that I had removed. Mysteriously, about 30 tires have appeared on the property. Am I responsible for their removal? I have witnesses that can state they were not on the property on settlement day.

  1. do you really want to pay the lawyers to argue about this?

    The view I would take, if arguing for the other side, is that the intent of the addendum was to receive a property free of waste tires. Effectively, the buyer wants you to present them with a property from which you have removed all the illegally dumped tires. Until you transfer the property, you are responsible for it and, in theory, should prevent it from being used as an illegal dump site.

    As long as there are waste tires on the property, you effectively are trying to transfer ownership of an illegal dump site, and the buyer has made it clear that they do not want to purchase such a liability.

    you can argue about it all you want, but to me it is easier and cheaper to simply get rid of the tires and grumble about the jerks in this world that think they can just use any old place to get rid of their crap.
