who owns the roof? i understand that you own your half of the duplex, but someone else owns the other half? correct?

did they have permission from the landlord?

things like this are why i would never own a duplex.

i have always seen more potential problems in buying a duplex than there were advantages. i have passed on buying a couple in the past because of this.

and if your next door neighbor has roaches, you will have roaches.

I cannot get enough space between myself and my neighbors. I would be happy in a leaky old shotgun house at the end of a winding dirt road that couldn't be driven down without 4wd in the rain and sat smack in the middle of 500 acres of briars.

Last duplex I rented, a buddy set up a fake door frame and knob before I moved out, on the centerline wall as if it opened into the neighbor's kitchen.

I had a coworker who picked up a good deal on a big house that had been subdivided; he purchased it cheap enough that the renters downstairs covered the note.

Haha we own from the studs in and a small yard. The exterior structure is common. I already called the landlord. They are removing it and putting it on a free standing mount and the landlord is fixing the roof. We are listing the place in the spring. Its an awesome place inside and its what we needed at the time. Our neighbors are nice but obviously not the brightest.
