Real Estate Boundary Disputes
Boundary disputes are some of the most common legal problems people face. While things may look cut and dry on paper, they are not always so easy in practice. It is remarkably common for property lines to be mismarked because of errors when surveying. There are also often problems related to handshake deals done long in the past between previous owners that were never legally ratified. No one is immune to boundary disputes, commercial or residential.
Often, property owners don't even realize this has happened until they embark on a construction project on their property. For example, when building an addition on your property, a neighbor may take issue, believing that you are encroaching on what they think is their land. Conversely, you may move to a new property and discover that a neighbor has coopted land that rightfully belongs to you.
Other real estate disputes may arise over:
- Error in deeds
- Covenant disputes
- Right of way disputes
Dealing with real estate disputes can be frustrating, and negotiations can quickly go awry. When things can't be resolved amicably, the only solution is to take your matter to court. Before you even get to that point, you need to seek legal representation. Our real estate law attorneys in Kalamazoo have a success rate in boundary dispute cases.
