Get answers to legal questions about real estate ... Email your questions to reweekly@rewnc.com and we’ll get a real real estate attorney to answer them. Seriously.

the question: We are buying a property that is not on a state maintained road, what should our concerns be?

the answer: You should be concerned as to whether there is a private road maintenance agreement in place with the other users of the road. You will need this to show who is responsible for maintaining the road. Also, your lender will most likely require that there be a road maintenance agreement in place before loaning money. Even if you are a cash buyer it would be best to have a road maintenance agreement in place prior to purchasing.

Crest Mountain is one of Asheville's most special places. Less than five miles from the heart of downtown, it remains isolated enough to be private and peaceful. The property itself just might be "the prettiest piece of land in Buncombe County," but the breathtaking views are Crest Mountain's true claim to fame.

Secrets to stress-free family dinners (StatePoint) Preparing an involved family dinner may not sound like the most appealing idea at the end of a long day. But homemade food is usually healthier, more economical, and certainly more delicious than ordering takeout dinners. “The best way to ensure you’re feeding your family wholesome meals is to make it yourself,” says Katie Workman, author of “The Mom 100 Cookbook,” a new cookbook designed to help time-pressed parents prepare crowd-pleasers. “Luckily, homemade doesn’t need to mean a big daily fuss.” The key is to prep in advance, cook in big batches and repurpose leftovers, points out Workman. Doing so keeps things simple for you and interesting for your family. Creative repurposing can save you time and money. For a meal you can enjoy all week, try this recipe from Workman for “Monday Night Brisket,” which you can make on a Sunday, eat hot Monday alongside potatoes, then enjoy later in the week as a soup on Tuesday, a sandwich on Wednesday and even a quesadilla Thursday. Monday Night Brisket (Serves 8 to 10). Ingredients: 1 teaspoon olive oil, 2 teaspoons minced garlic, 1 teaspoon dried thyme, 1 teaspoon salt, 1⁄4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, 1 first-cut beef brisket (4 to 5 pounds), 2 cups chopped onions, 4 large carrots, peeled and thickly sliced, 3 bay leaves, 3 tablespoons tomato paste, 1 cup low-sodium beef or chicken broth, 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes in juice or puréed, 1 cup red wine, 2 tablespoons finely chopped Italian parsley, for garnish Directions: • Preheat oven to 325 degree F. • Place first five ingredients in bowl and stir. Rub mixture all over. • Place brisket fat side up in large casserole or Dutch oven with lid. Toss in onions, carrots and bay leaves.

• Blend tomato paste into broth, then pour over meat and vegetables. Pour crushed tomatoes and red wine on top. Cover casserole and bake brisket until meat is very tender, 3 to 3 1/2 hours. • If you’re serving it the next day, let it cool then place in the refrigerator. An hour before serving, skim off hardened fat and cut excess fat from the top. Slice brisket across the grain and return to cooking liquid. Reheat on stovetop over medium-low heat, or in preheated 325 degree F oven, until everything is warmed through and cooking liquid has thickened. Adjust seasonings as needed.

• If you’re serving it today, remove meat from casserole and let it rest on a platter, loosely tented with aluminum foil. Let the cooking liquid and vegetables sit for about 15 minutes, then spoon off accumulated fat. Place casserole over medium-high heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Adjust seasonings as necessary. Slice meat across the grain, return to pot, and discard bay leaves. • Garnish with parsley.

(StatePoint) Health care costs are on the rise. Between a maturing baby boom population and an explosion of available tests, treatments and devices, Americans spend about twice as much per capita for healthcare compared to other western countries.

• A recent study conducted by the Commonwealth Fund found that uninsured and underinsured U.S. women are more likely to skip care because of costs than women in 10 other industrialized nations. Be an advocate for affordable care by becoming an active voter and engaging your elected officials.

Some experts warn that despite legislation like the Affordable Care Act that promises to expand quality coverage to everyone, there are still a lot of unknowns about the future of healthcare in this country.

• Seek alternate sources of information. Health symposiums and conventions, for example, bring together patients and doctors for a healthy exchange of information not normally available. The Prostate Cancer Educational Symposium is a series of events that are free to attend and will address risk awareness, treatment options, and disease management. To register, visit TheProstateNet.org/Symposium.html.

“Getting savvy about your health and the future of healthcare politics can help protect you and your family, no matter what trends we see in the years to come,” says Virgil Simons, Founder and

• Take steps to reduce your chance of being diagnosed

Unknowns in the future of healthcare President of The Prostate Net, a nonprofit patient education and advocacy organization. Here are some important steps to consider: • Know your health risks. Some populations are more susceptible to certain diseases than others, and if you have a family history of a particular disease, you may be genetically predisposed for a certain condition. Take advantage of free screenings where possible and make realistic and appropriate decisions about what diagnostic exams are

important for you to receive. Testing for the sake of testing can add enormous costs to your health care bills and may not be worth the price tag. • Disparity in quality of care is often due to lack of knowledge. Empower yourself to get better care with free resources. For example, The Prostate Net’s bi-monthly “In the Know” newsletters serve as a thorough review of information and developments in healthcare of critical importance to men. You can access the free newsletters online or order a print edition at www.ProstateNet.com/intheknow_a.ht m.

with a life-threatening disease. You can start by eliminating risky habits like smoking, reducing your intake of alcohol and highly processed foods, and eating a diet rich in vegetables, lean meats and whole grains. Obesity increases your risk for diseases like cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Incorporate exercise into your day to help maintain a healthy weight. No matter what the future holds politically for healthcare reform, Americans can become their own health advocates by getting informed.

Are your neighbors friend or foe? Neighbors complained when a "starving artist" in East Hampton, N.Y., invited any and all to throw a pint of paint on his house. The artist wanted a free paint job. By: Lisa Kaplan Gordon HouseLogic.com Neighbors wage war every day over blocked views, loud noise, big and small annoyances. Do you have a good neighbor policy? How's it working out? File this under No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: A Buffalo home owner sued her neighbors for cleaning up her littered patio without her permission. She said they trespassed and discriminated against her. A federal judge disagreed, and forced her to pay $107,000 in attorney fees. Think I'll skip that neighborhood's next block party. I've been a home owner for 27 years and can think of no greater hell than waging

war with neighbors. The idea of scurrying to collect my mail so I'll avoid an angry couple next door makes me want to down a Xanax. So what do I do? I usually bend over backwards to keep the peace. Once, I hacked off the tops of my sunflowers because my neighbor complained they blocked the sun from shining on her tomatoes. For the past two summers, I've allowed a twangy lute to drown out summer crickets because another neighbor adds a mid-eastern soundtrack to his nightly pool parties. And I let it go when the couple across the street snuck into my yard and pruned my willow because they thought it

blocked traffic sight lines around the corner. But I may be in the minority. These days, it seems like neighbor feuds are the rule, not the exception. Former Seattle Mariners first basemen John Olerud finally won a long, unhappy battle with the minister next door to remove a Chinese pine that obstructed Olerud's lake and mountain views. The neighbors had been great friends, and it seems a crying shame they let a pine tree rip them apart. Sick of escalating fights over loud reggae music, a Tampa judge sentenced two feuding neighbors to monthly potluck dinners together. Maybe breaking bread will stop the fights: If it were me, I'd bring a taste tester before I bit into the tuna casserole. Neighbors complained when a "starving artist" in East Hampton, N.Y., invited any and all to throw a pint of paint on his house. The artist wanted a free paint job: What he got was angry neighbors worried about property values. Can't we all just get along, or at least get some perspective? I'm not saying hack off sunflowers to avoid a fight - that just worked for me, and my flower-loving neighbor felt guilty for years. But some honest communication, or perhaps a little mediation, could keep your front yard from becoming a battleground.
