My question involves real estate located in the State of: Alabama
I purchased property from my Grandfather 3 years ago. When he purchased the property 28 years ago he built a boundary fence through an open field and it has always been accepted as the boundary line by the adjoining land owners. By "owners" I mean the adjoining property was passed from father to son around 15 years ago. The current owner recently had his property surveyed. He informed me that the survey showed that the fence was angled off of what should be the property line over on to his side about 60 feet over about a 1000 foot line creating an approx.. 1 acre wedge that he believes is his. Our county plat maps also show the difference when layered with aerial photos. Again the fence was established as a boundary fence 28 years ago and has always been accepted as the boundary until recently. what should be done in this situation?
