My question involves real estate located in the State of: Virginia
I purchased a house last year but recently learned that my fence encroaches on to the neighbor's property by about one foot. Although I did not know it at the time of settlement, the survey noted it and my title insurance policy includes a clause that the encroachment is not covered.
About five years ago, the original builder of the subdivision made a boundary adjustment to the lots, and filed an updated plat with the county. However the builder's survey company never moved the iron pipe survey marker.
The prior owners of my house had hired a fence company and they relied only on the outdated marker.
Do I have any recourse? If so, against whom?
I intend to move the fence, sprinkler system, and french drain to make this right (approx. $5000).
