My neighbors wanted to fence off land I had been using for over 30 years- it is thier land however I had an electric gate at the end of my driveway and had a conduit running under the cement drive. I asked the lawyer for a letter to stop them building it. After 5k I got no letter- she wanted the details of the conduit and all I know is it ran under the fence. The neigbours had the land surveyed and that didn't agree with my survey 18months before. I wanted another survey. I never got the letter .
