Before you can resolve a boundary dispute, it’s essential to understand the root of the problem. In many cases, boundary disputes arise due to the following reasons:
Unclear or vague boundaries: If the boundaries of your property are unclear or vague, it can lead to confusion and disputes over time.
Encroachment: If your neighbor’s property encroaches on your land, or vice versa, it can lead to boundary disputes.
Landscaping or construction: Landscaping or construction work can sometimes lead to boundary disputes, especially if it involves building structures near the boundary.
Adverse Possession: If your neighbor has been using your land for an extended period, they may have a legal right to claim ownership, leading to boundary disputes.
