We Bought our property in 1969 and It had a fence on it that was the property line Now some people that own property on the other side of our fence have had a surveyer come and survey their property and they are trying to say their line come around 2 ft past our fence. The highway department made a rightway between their property and ours They are going across the road the highway dept. built and trying to calim property on the other side of our fence,We told them to start at our steel stake that was driven in over 30 years ago and and measure from our peg to get the end of ther line.How do the surveyer determined where to start and out?Our property has been fenced over 47yr. that we have owned and the fence has been on this property over 100 years. Wollud the law say that since we have had it finced over 47 year that is was our no matter what.?I do not feel we shoud have to spent a lot of money to have it re surveyed

Barrister -- Contacting you again on my Mom's property. Had

Hi Barrister --Contacting you again on my Mom's property.Had the survey completed and got the results. The surveyor has placed the following notation directly on the survey:Quoting the note he has placed within the survey itself:IN 1965 HARRY ETTER INTENDED FOR THE RIGHT-OF-WAY FOR VILLA VIEWDRIVE TO BE ALONG THE WESTERN PROPERTY LINE OF LEE SHOCKEY, NOW NANCY JACKSON.IN AUGUST OF 1966, THE RIGHT-OF-WAY WAS MOVED WESTWARD IN ORDER TO CREATETHE LOT OF CURRENT RICHARD BERKLITE, THEREBY MAKING THE 50' RIGHT-OF-WAYACROSS GUNBY UNUSABLE AND ESSENTIALLY ELIMINATING THE RIGHT-OF-WAY TO PEN MAR ROAD.The way I'm reading this is that the "entrance" to the right of way on my mom's property -- which was on Richard Berklite's property was moved in 1966. So it no longer exists on his property. As a result, the right of way still indicated on my mom's deeds is NOT accessible from Villa View Drive nor can it provide access to Villa View Drive and subsequently Pen Mar Road the Main Road.Does this give me any leverage to have the Right of way removed from my mom's property? Also, have a large amount of evidence that support the Adverse possession defense we had previously discussed.If it does, do I need to go to court to have it removed or how do I pursue getting this off the deed?Attached is a scanned copy of the survey document.

There are no court records of the easement (that we know of). Is this easement still valid? He is no longer land locked.

I have just found out my Mother (80yo) bought a property in

I have just found out my Mother (80yo) bought a property in N. Idaho that has a neighbors shed encroaching on her property by @ 200sq ft; with a 8x40ft strip of land via a 8ft fence offset. (With the fence encroachment it's more like 520sq ft total) The shed's gotta be @ 60 years old at least and the encroachment is obvious. Mom unknowingly let the encroachment be excluded from theTitle Policy and the Survey clearly shows the property lines identify the encroachment. The neighbor is simple folk that doesn't understand Adverse Possession and hasn't claimed it; but know they alsothink they own the land under it. I want Mom to get along with her neighbors; but she could lose this land & it restricts any future sale. Is there some kind of legal document ($1/yr perpetual lease maybe?) that would protect Mom and allow the encroachment at the same time before I have to file Action to Quiet Title? btw...is that no good dirty low down RE Agent liable for this? He clearly took advantage of a Buyer that may be on the edge of dementia.
