I have a question about a property dispute in New Mexico. My

I have a question about a property dispute in New Mexico. My family and I originally owned 5.93 acres and a house on 1.09 acres for the past 30+ years since 1989. We have a brick home and a chain link fence around the borders of the house that has been there for over 20+ years. We decided to sell the land 5.93 acres to a buyer in 2011. He bought the land, that was surveyed with a certain description. We had the chain link fence up and there was no problem. Then in 2013, the buyer sold (owner financing) the land to another buyer (3rd owner) with the surveys and boundaries set in 2010. Now fast forward 2016, the 3rd owner had a private survey done in March 2016 without our knowledge sent us a letter saying our chain link fence is encroaching on his property by 3 feet on the North and East sides. He has sent us a letter to have us remove our fence in 30 days.My questions is, does adverse possession apply in this case in our favor, we have had our fence for more than 20 years, if there was a property line problem wasn't it up to the 2nd buyer to dispute it with us in 2013, and we have been paying property taxes on the "disputed 3 feet of land for more than 30 years," don't we own that area now??Thank youMelissa Molina

We are the home buyers in CA. Our sellers had the dispute with

We are the home buyers in CA. Our sellers had the dispute with the neighbor about the tree roots after we signed the contract with them. Seller's tree roots are affecting the neighbor's yard .We haven't signed the escrow yest and just want to cancel the deal and want to receive our deposit.Are we eligible to do that? What legal papers should be sent to the seller in terms to have the clear reason why we want to cancel the deal?We do not want to be involved in any communications with the neighbors, because we are not owners of the property yet. But the seller's realtor says that we should contact the neighbor..Please advise.Sincerely,Dr. Glibicky

We have had two surveys done showing that two

***** *****. We have had two surveys done showing that two retaining walls come onto our property 2 ft. and 1 ft. respectively. The first survey was done in 2006 and just a few days ago for the second. There is a piece of their property locked into this area that they refuse to put steps from one wall so that they can maintain this small piece of their property (25 x 25 ft) so they continuously come onto our property to access it. It wasn't a big problem until recently when they started contracting landscapers to mow their lawn and they come over onto our property with their commercial mowers. My question: Can my neighbor get an easement just because he does not want to take steps to be able to access his property?JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: We have tried numerous time to speak to them about coming to a resolution but the last time the wife blasted me for about 15 minutes on her doorstep for being a kindless neighbor trying to cause problems.JA: OK got it.

My parents had a property line dispute with their neighbor.

My parents had a property line dispute with their neighbor. They filed suit against the neighbor after the neighbor served them with a new property boundary than the one recorded at the courthouse. They did this in 2008. Nothing was settled and in 2013 my parents could no longer afford the mortgage, the roof needed to be replaced and the HVAC went out My parents were broke and so my wife and I bought their house. We did ask the attorney that we used for the closing about the property line dispute and title insurance. He said that if we did not care about the disputed triangle of land on one end of the property, that we could just buy the house as the deed was currently recorded and get title insurance which we did. Over a year later, the property dispute was settled in my parents favor and the attorney they contracted with sent them a bill for his time. By then my father was dying and my mother had dementia. We had moved them out of the home and into an assisted living. They did not have the money to pay the attorney fees, and they did not believe they owed the fees (having believed that they would get the retainer that they paid back if they won). Now the attorney is suing for a lien on the property that we own. We have an offer that we are accepting. The lien has not been granted - we answered the complaints that are part of the case but have not heard back. Is there any problem with simply going through with the sale of the home since there is no lien and we do not believe that he has a right to lien our property. BTW, we will lose money on the deal - spent more for the house and the repairs than we will get on this sale.
