The age-old American dream is to buy your own home and enjoy time there with loved ones and friends. The enthusiasm and joy of buying your own home may fade over time as you start to understand the responsibilities and concerns connected with being a homeowner. Perhaps your neighbor’s bushes are hanging into your property causing problems or the property line is not clearly distinguished. There are many problems that can arise, which require an experienced lawyer to resolve.
Property Line Disputes
Property laws are confusing and difficult to understand. If you have any doubts about property lines and what can be done, you should talk to a lawyer. If your neighbor uses part of your property for an extended period of time, they may be able to gain the rights to that property through adverse possession. After this has occurred, it is difficult to get your property back. In some cases, you may not be able to re-claim the property as your own. Due to this, it is important to seek the advice of an attorney as soon as possible if there is a property line dispute.
In order to resolve a property line dispute, you will need to determine where your property ends. The first place to look is on the deed to the property. It should show there the property ends. If you are still unsure, you can check with the tax assessor’s office. If confusion still persists, a land survey can determine exactly where your property ends and your neighbor’s begins. This is a lot cheaper and less time consuming than taking your neighbor to court, but if you still feel that the property division is in question, you may speak to an attorney who can help you determine if you have a case.
