A fence is over your property line did you lose this property?
Maybe. In certain situations, if your state has the doctrine of mutual acquiescence, you could lose the land. You should contact a real estate attorney in your area for specific guidance on your state's laws and your particular situation.
If the plants are on your property they may be planted along your neighbors fence. However, climbing plants that will grow over the fence cannot be planted along your neighbors fence. Caveat: Make sure your neighbor has not installed the fence "inside" their property line so it lies a short distance FROM the property line. That is the practice in some areas and is required by the city ordinances in some areas. In that case… Read More

Land owner next to you intentionally put a fence up 12 inches over your property line before you bought your land and will not pay to move it to the property line or go half on it. What to do?
It is a trespass and if it is not removed upon your request, you can have a court order it to be removed.

On the other hand, you can also provide the neighbor with a "limited license" to use that strip of your property, and propose… Read More

Maybe. Most states have a legal doctrine called adverse possession, which allows people to own property that they have used as their own but is not owned by them.

You need to check with an attorney in your area for specifics on… Read More
Can a neighbor remove our wire fence to put up a new cedar privacy fence even though our fence has been there over thirty years and even if the survey says our fence is 8 inches into their property?

You need to see a real estate attorney in your area ASAP to prevent the fence from being removed and to assert your rights. Even if the fence has been removed, you can likely still get justice. The link below will give you a basic understanding of adverse possession, which will be supplemented by… Read More

If your neighbor and you have a common fence face-interchanging sides separated by a 4 inch wood between the sides is it legal to put a 3 inch high net over your fence on this 4 inch wood?
Depends on who owns the fence, i.e. whose property it is on or who bought it in the first place. Often one person installs a fence (maybe 3 owners ago) then allows the neighbor to install wood on their side of the owners fence. This wood is the owners wood but people do it cause it is cheaper than installing a second fence on their own property. If you own the fence (its on your… Read More

Is there a statute of limitations on encroachment After 10 years of having our fence one foot over the property line do we have to move the fence?
Quite frankly, it would depend on where you live. My advice to you would be to visit the city or town hall and ask them for their advice. Chances are that you or your neighbour will have to hire someone to survey the land to prove who owns the land the fence currently sits on. First, you should hire an attorney who will help you frame the proper question, such as "what is adverse possession"… Read More
