Boundary "Fence Line" Disputes

The Importance of a Having an Attorney in Boundary Disputes

Not many people realize that having a boundary dispute or any type of claim on their land can affect their property's fair market value. If the dispute is not quickly and effectively resolved, the property's fair market value can drop, which will make it difficult to sell. Most buyers are turned off by properties with encumbrances, such as encroachments and easements.

Additionally, failing to properly disclose such encumbrances in a Transfer Disclosure Statement (TDS) during the sale of property (residential only, with some exceptions) can lead to personal liability of damages to the buyer. This often includes attorney's fees.

Whether you are a plaintiff or defendant, let us help you with your boundary dispute matter, which may involve:

  • Encroachments
