Is it a fencing anomally?
Have you seen the survey?
If it is a fencing issue then this is going to be hard for them.
Also they have not owned the land long enough to make any application for adverse possession.
Here is some information.
If they have not owned it for 12 years they have no action.
If they are concerned that they have your land on their side then you can seek to have the fence moved.
If it is their land on your side you can try making a claim. If you dispute their survey then you can have your own done.
I know when it was put there from your message.
You can apply for adverse possession of their land if you have been looking after it for 12 years or more.
You have to apply for the land to be changed under Adverse possession. I sent you a link to explain what that is. It is not automatic you have to make an application with DERM
DERM is the department of lands in QLD.
You need to speak to a Solicitor that practices in Property Law and have them assist you.
You can get a referral from the law society of QLD
Their website is as follows:
They will give your more information.
