Common Boundary Disputes
Naturally, property owners are very protective of what they believe is entitled to them. However, sometimes tension rises between neighbors and a dispute over the boundaries of each other’s properties ensues. Many of these disputes stir up a great deal of emotion, so if the conflicting parties cannot come to an agreement, legal action is usually the next step.
Boundary disputes may arise for a variety of reasons:
- Mistakes in deeds: Deeds which inaccurately determine boundary lines
- Unmarked boundary lines: Lack of physical boundary marks, causing formality issues
- Property encroachment: A fence or another object is encroaching on another’s property or obstructing their view
- Adverse possession: Holding property in place of the true owner for a period of time
If you and another party are not able to come to a peaceful agreement on each other’s property boundaries, it would then be wise to seek an experienced real estate litigation lawyer.
