The septic tank and field are essentially right in front of the house and is pretty obvious.
The previous owner of the land was the mother-in-law of the neighbor. The neighbor's deceased husband was deeded an acre of land to build a house. However, when building they went beyond their deeded land. Nobody knew of this encroachment until the trust tried to sell the land.
Do we need to take any proactive measures now in order to protect ourselves. Essentially I want this resolved so the real estate transaction can complete. The buyer will not move forward with pending legal action. So what is the quickest method for me to get a legal / binding resolution that she has no claim to the land ?
