Disputes between neighbors are not uncommon. They can result from simple actions. Adding improvements to property can cause problems if neighbors have differences over the property line. The placement of a new fence or pool near a property line may be based on inaccurate, outdated surveys. High-rise additions to a home, or new landscaping involving large trees, may block a neighbor's view, leading to litigation between neighbors.

Historical uses of property may lead to disagreements over current or future planned uses of an area of land. A neighbor may claim that he or she has acquired a prescriptive easement for a road, power line or some other purpose based on past experience. Our lawyers have substantial experience helping homeowners resolve complex property disputes while zealously guarding our clients' property rights.
