Buying a Property

Hello,

Sometimes, property encroachment is an honest mistake. Bad surveys are a common cause, as are unclear communications between homeowners and contractors, neighbors, or tenants. Often, property owners are not fully aware of where their property lines begin and end, and they may encroach without being aware of it. On other occasions, the encroachment may be deliberate and malicious, as in the case of neighbors who have a contentious relationship and start building fences where they are legally not allowed to do so. Once a property encroachment occurs, there are several actions which can be taken. A property owner may politely request that the encroachment be addressed by being removed, or ask that the encroaching landowner pay rent for the land they are encroaching on. It is also possible to go to court and request a court order for removal, and sometimes land owners can sell the encroached land to the encroaching landowner, thereby making it theirs to use in perpetuity.

Thanks,

RE: Buying a Property

Thanks for the information about property encroachment. Consequences are there when the property is having connection with prior owners who were not keen to sell it in the first place. Later on they may trouble the new owner. In that case, it is mandatory to hire an attorney.
