Adverse Possession: What Is It and Can It Affect Your Plans?
Adverse possession occurs when someone who doesn’t own the land claims legal ownership through continuous use. If you’re planning to change a boundary wall, adverse possession can become an issue if your neighbor claims the land as their own. In this case, you may need to resolve the dispute through the courts.
Conveyancing: What Role Does It Play?
When buying or selling a property, it’s essential to check the title deeds and ensure that the boundary walls are correctly defined. A professional surveyor can advise you on any potential issues and help resolve any disputes before they become legal problems.
