I recently bought a house and it was listed as .90 acres(the parcel the house is on and an outlot behind us) the city is now saying the outlot was never part of the deed and was a mistake going back years, yet the outlot was listed on our initial appraisel and is listed on our tax bill...so we are paying taxes on it. What are my options to keep the outlot which was supposed to be part of the property?

My neighbor has been bullying me ever since he bought the house

My neighbor has been bullying me ever since he bought the house next door. I filed several police reports and nothing helped. Recently,he accused me of killing his plants when I used my weed killer spray. I always sprayed near the border of my property to kill the weeds. Now, he planted some plants right near the border and some of them died and wants someone to blame. So, he installed cameras and put signs on the border saying do not spray. I do not want to be a wimp and not spray my own area. What do you suggest I should do short of going to court?

We have been living same property for 45 years. Last year a survey was done to the property next door. The survey people knocked on our door informed us that part of our blacktop driveway was on the other property, by approximately three feet.Nothing is been done, no letter, or problems, however my question is since I have been maintaining this for many years,can they demand their property? No fights, however I'm very worried that it will cost me major money to redesign my driveway.

Representing a client (seller) whose deed includes language

Representing a client (seller) whose deed includes language re: a "potential" 30-ft boundary dispute with the northern neighbor (similar language not in neighbor's deed). Unable to get neighbor to agree to boundary line agreement, so now buyer's attorney's requesting that seller give deed omitting the "potential boundary dispute" language. Not comfortable with this.

I purchased a home four months ago and after about two months

I purchased a home four months ago and after about two months they started construction of apartments next door, I would have never purchased this house if I knew about the apartments going in. Now I have a two story apartment looking down at my back yard. Should this of been reveled in the disclosure of the seller? Talking to my new neighbors, the apartments were the reason they sold the house. My wife and I are sick about this and need to know what options if any we have.

I am a NJ homeowner and my neighbor placed a partial fence

I am a NJ homeowner and my neighbor placed a partial fence to line up with my existing fence(which was installed by the previous homeowner of my property). His fence was installed less than five years ago. It is within my property line as the norm for fencing installation in my town is to leave a foot between property lines. I would like to request him to remove it. Should I advise him in writing or in person? How much time should I give him to move or dismantle it? If he does not take it down after recommended time, may I remove it myself and pile the remains alongside his property for him to dispose of? Thanks for your advice.

Hi, I have a property boundary dispute question in Utah. We

Hi, I have a property boundary dispute question in Utah. We bought our house in 2000. Our house was built in 1995. Last August, 2014 we received a letter from our neighbor (who bought the house next door just a few months after we bought ours in 2000), saying that our house is built on his property and that our fence line is about 180 feet on his property. He says that we are on 1.3 acres of his land. His fence and ours run parallel. My neighbor's predecessor, who I was able to speak with, told me that he had a survey done in 1993 right before he built his house next to ours, and he told me that "the surveyor set up a tall stake with a flag at the back corner of the property and the fence installers used that to line up the fence. The issue of a wrong survey never came up during the time we owned the property," which was from 1993 - 2000. It's not quite 20 years where the main fence was erected on his property, but his predecessor did erect a partial metal fence in 1993 that connects to the aforementioned fence above that was built a few years later. The metal fence is still there. Can this metal fence be used as a boundary marker?

A neighgor has stored equipment on my property without my permission.

A neighgor has stored equipment on my property without my permission. I have asked the neighbor to remove all items from my property twice and have left a copy of the plat map showing the property boundries. It has now been one month since my second request and there is still a snow plow attachment, lawn mover, ladders, 55 gallon barrel, and other junk on my property. The neighbor also has a burn pile on my property and has continued to use it after I explicitly told him to stop. Can I use the ORS 90.425 and 90.675 to give notice and then dispose of this property?
