Hire An Experienced Boundary Line Dispute Law Firm
Property boundary line disputes can be a disruptive and aggravating challenge for business and residential property owners alike. Often, the physical boundaries that are used over the years will differ from the actual legal property description and boundaries. Changing terrain as well as changes in property ownership can obscure true property lines and cause disagreements. To settle a property line dispute fairly, property owners should enlist the help of an experienced real estate law firm that will fight for their legal rights.
Property Line Disputes: Common Issues
- Determining legal boundaries, versus what has been routinely used and observed
- Structures (such as fences) or vegetation over-stepping property lines
- Changing legal property descriptions to match current use
Often, adjoining property owners may be able to agree on changes to legal descriptions, to match the actually observed boundaries. In other cases, neighbors may not be so amicable. When an agreement cannot be reached, boundary line changes can sometimes be forced through adverse possession. Adverse possession is the process by which legal title to a property or portion of a property can change due to open and continuous use by another party. In Washington State, adverse possession requires uninterrupted, open use for a period of at least 10 years. An experienced real estate attorney can help you determine if your case meets the elements of an adverse possession claim.
