My question involves real estate located in the State of: ohio
I just bought my house in October. There is a privacy fence all the way around the back yard. I got a letter from the rental company that owns the house next me. The letter says the fence in over my property line and is on their property. I had an appraisal done when I bought the house. There we no encroachments listed on the appraisal. They say they are giving me until March to move the fence. I don't even know if the previous owners put this fence up or if someone renting their property did. At the time we closed there were no papers we had to sign for any encroachments. Are these people full of crap? This letter did not come from the City or an attorney. They don't show any proof of a survey showing this fence is over the property line. It appears the fence is newer but not brand new. I would assume it's been up for a few years. They had a family renting the home and they just moved out. How can I obtain any permits if any from when the fence was put up? What can I do? Please help!
