Hello. A recent town-sponsored sewer line upgrade revealed that our sewer line runs across our neighbor
's property. Our neighbor's concern is now compounded by a clean-out stub to our line on his lawn. We have a good relationship with our neighbors, but this can sour if nothing is done. My question is whether and to what extent are we or the town legally obliged to help remedy this?
JA: Because real estate
law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Other details: New Jersey. Our hose is the original home on the land, 1905, with the neighbors / subdivision in 1956. No records of easements
and no flags during our respective title searches. -- Thanks.
JA: Has any paperwork been filed?
Customer: No legal claims have been filed, but I would hate that it would have to come to that.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Estimates to re-route our sewer line are $8-15k.
