Tennessee Property Line/Boundaries. We have a common fence

Customer Question

Tennessee: Property Line/Boundaries. We have a common fence between our property and all our adjacent neighbors. One of our neighbors passed away in early 2009. A survey was done on the property shortly thereafter. The surveyor was very pleasant & confirmed the fence was/is the property line with the exception of 6in.x3ft or so behind our barn. Some new folks purchased the property about 6 months ago & literally from day ONE started cutting trees on the fence row to build a go cart track for their son. RUDE and disrespectful! But it's their property. When I got home from work this evening my son noticed some new fence posts & string. It was 10ft on my side of the fence! They cut down some of my trees, pulled the survey pins, ripped out the ground flags & tore the flags from the fence from the previous survey. I called the sheriff to document & then I went a pulled up all the fence posts and removed the string. What are my options now?

To sue for trespassing on your property and cutting your trees and probably also to quiet title to the disputed strip that they apparently claim.
