A man is suing over claims he entered into a contract for deed for a property, which the owner is attempting to sell.

James Yanas filed a lawsuit Oct. 7 in Galveston County District Court against Billy Jo McCreery.

According to the complaint, Yanas and McCreery entered into a contract for deed relating to a property on Buttonwood Drive in Texas City on Sept. 22, 2009, and Yanas has made all his payments on time. The complaint states McCreery has listed the property with a real estate agent and attempted to sell it within the last 30 days, which constitutes an attempt to breach the agreement.

Yanas seeks declaratory judgment as to his rights under the contract, injunctive relief preventing the defendant from selling the property and attorney fees. He is represented by attorney Keith Gross of League City.

Galveston County District Court case number: 14-CV-1076
