What is Adverse Possession?
Adverse Possession involves a situation where someone tries to claim land that belongs to you (or you try to claim possession of someone else’s land) simply because they have used or “possessed” the land for a statutorily set time. In the “old days,” it usually involved large estates or farm lands where property boundaries were not clearly demarcated.
In modern times, Adverse Possession claims in Nassau County are on the rise. With more and more homeowners erecting fences, property line disputes are increasing each year.
Suppose you believe your property line extends to your neighbor’s fence line. However, your neighbor wants to put in a new fence and after a survey, it is revealed that his property line goes right up the middle of your newly paved driveway. What happens? You claim the land is yours through Adverse Possession. Your neighbor claims you’re attempting to steal his land. These issues can pose difficult legal questions that can directly impact the value of your home.
We can also assist you with:
Encroachments: When a landowner objects to the placement of structures since she or he believes the structure has actually been put on his or her property.
Easements: When an entity has a legal right to utilize a part of another landowner’s property (i.e., utility business running pipelines or other structures to provide energies to other areas).
Prescriptive easements: If a person has constantly used property that does not belong to them, state law may develop an easement in the individual’s favor to help him or her continue to utilize the property.
