Re: As property owners, can we be held liable?

Our atty said we could be liable for any neighbor kid drownings just because my name was on the deed didn't matter if we knew or not, but I don't know if would have been the same for a dog. So we talked to the buyers and they agreed to fence it. I would evict them, they are just going to keep causing you problems.
While I have kept quiet about them so far due to them being Dh's family, I'm pretty sure this is the point I am at, and I'm not going to hold it in any longer. This is too much. This is the LAST thing we need on our plate right now.
