Property disputes are never fun. Often the best way to deal with them is to keep them from happening in the first place. That’s easier said than done, of course. We can’t always account for a disgruntled neighbor who thinks they own a portion of your land, a landlord who takes advantage of a tenant or even being misled by fraud. However, if we can better recognize these disputes, we may be better at preventing them.
Let’s look at a few common disputes and resolutions.
A property dispute can involve many different locations. Anything from a home or business to a road, empty lot, or even a body of water can be part of a property dispute. Often the primary conflict revolves around ownership. Do you own the property that you’re building a fence on? Who has the right to a resource? It can also involve repair responsibility, zoning issues, or one property’s impact on another.
Generally, a property dispute will fall into one of a few categories.
At times simple honesty, fairness, and fulfillment of duty can avoid a property dispute. Other times, they’re nearly unavoidable.
