He is currently incarcerated for 12 counts of sexual assault and wont be out of prison for a few years. What criteria do I need to follow for eviction, if any?

My ex-brother-in-law was deeded S40ft of an acre which

My ex-brother-in-law was deeded S40ft of an acre which included a barn. My ex-husband was left the rest of the acre. When he mother passed away he was the executor of the will. He wrote out the warranty deeds and filed his deed with the Appraisal District the same day he probated the will, but when he did so he went from the s40ft of the acre to 13,330 feet. My ex-husband has passed away and I am trying to get the estate in order. He has already sold the lot to a neighbor. There is no specific language saying where the lot starts and ends. Is this legal and is there anything I can do about it?

A walkway leading from the front yard to the back yard at my

A walkway leading from the front yard to the back yard at my house has been in place for more than 15 years. Some of the land occupied by this path is on my neighbor's property. Three years ago I put up a fence to enclose the walkway. The then-owner was living overseas, and to my knowledge, unaware of the encroachment.One year ago a real estate developer purchased the next door property. This developer is now telling me that they are going to remove the fence and put up another one along the real property line. Doing this would remove my long-standing access to my backyard.

Apparently when our HOA was set up, there was a certain

Apparently when our HOA was set up, there was a certain portion of every property set aside as a "common area." Mainly, it is the margin of about 10 feet at the back of everyone's property. Our CCRs say that things may not be built on it, nor within 5 feet. But this has not been enforced for many years, perhaps 20; all of the fences were built contiguously on this and there has been open and notorious use of this by individual homeowners. Can we simply deed that common area to each homeowner? WOuld that require a 100% vote, or the 2/3 required by our CCRs?
