My question involves real estate located in the State of: Virginia.
I bought a house ~5 years ago with an existing fence. The fence is very old and has been where it is for about 15 years (to my neighbor's recollection). A new neighbor has purchased the property next door and, due to a new survey, has decided my fence encroaches on his property by about 8 feet at one of the corners. Without ever speaking to me, he's painted that 8 ft section of fence orange. Given that he's a new owner, does the "Doctrine of Adverse Possession" apply here?
