Common Issues In Neighbor Or Boundary Dispute Cases

Disputes here can arise over perfectly legitimate reasons – such as a person was confused about where his or her property begins or ends – but they might also happen due to a poor relationship between the parties. Various examples that often lead to property disputes between neighbors include:

  • Putting up a fence or wall on another person’s property
  • Claiming another’s property as one’s own (going over established boundary lines)
  • Cutting down or damaging a neighbor’s trees, planting trees on a neighbor’s property or planting trees that block a view
  • Draining excessive water on a neighbor’s property
  • Using another’s property without permission or easement

It can be very hard to find common ground in these cases. Often, each side will be very emotional and attached to their specific concerns. Things continue to escalate until a lawsuit becomes necessary. Our attorneys work hard to resolve these matters before they have to head inside the courtroom, but know that if your neighbor remains unreasonable, we are prepared to take your case to a trial if it is in your best interests.
