Bar metzreh

Question:

Is there bar metzreh if seller is a goy?
The neighbor is a small shul and the goy would not sell to them because they did not get along. There is a for-sale on house for the past 4 weeks and wasn’t sold to neighbor. Is it ok for others to buy?

Answer:

Thank you for your question.

There is no problem with you buying the property as far as bar metzra is concered because bar metzra does not apply if the seller is a gentile. The reason is because, the buyer can say that is doing the nieghbor a favor by making the neighborhood more Jewish.

Best wishes
