Whether you own a home in a planned neighborhood or hundreds of acres of woodland, boundary disputes can and will happen. Many times these disputes occur when one party wants to build a fence or is preparing to sell or develop the property.
It is critical that as soon as you discover that there is a disputed boundary you call a real estate lawyer who has fought and resolved boundary disputes.
Laws can change the ownership of land, even when a person can demonstrate they originally purchased the land. If a property owner allows a trespasser or a neighbor to use property for too long it might establish rights to that property, including actually vesting the property to that other person.
