Often a dispute arises between owners of adjoining land regarding the correct boundary between two parcels of land. It is important to take immediate steps to resolve boundary disputes because if an individual has occupied land for a period of time without ejection, a future Court may hold that that person is entitled to an interest in, or ownership of the land under the principles of “adverse possession.”
As with many things, there are exceptions to this, but it is prudent to take steps to minimize any liability or risk if you suspect that there may be irregular use or occupation of land, which you claim to be yours. To determine a boundary dispute, a surveyor may need to be engaged to take a survey of the land. That survey report may then be relied upon when making assertions about the boundary line.
Other issues may arise during a boundary dispute including fence disputes, allegations of trespass, disputes about building works and overhanging trees.
