In last week's Blog article we discussed the basic nature of real estate encroachment disputes. In this week's article we discuss the law governing such disputes in more detail. Buffington Law Firm's real estate trial lawyers recommend that if you are involved in a real estate encroachment dispute that you not take action yourself without legal advice. These disputes can be both emotional and tricky, and good legal advice can prevent escalation of the dispute and also avoid further legal problems.
Buffington Law Firm's real estate litigation attorneys have dealt with numerous real estate encroachment disputes in recent years. Real estate encroachment disputes usually occur between owners of adjoining property parcels when one owner begins treating part of their neighbor's property as his or her own. Perhaps they fence in a portion of your property. In other cases we have seen situations in which a neighbor constructed a road or driveway on neighboring property and started using it. Such cases tend to be emotional and usually require legal expertise to resolve.
