Re: Adverse Possession-What is the Real Truth About This
adverse possession requires exclusive, notorious, and continuous use for 7 years, if under color of title (that means there is some reason to believe you actually own the property in question) or 20 years without such claim.
A prescriptive easement is more likely what you would be seeking. That is a claim of being able to continue the use of a given piece of property after using it for a certain number of years. NC apparently does not have a defined statutory time required to be able to make a claim. As such, it is based in case law. From what I could find, that also requires a use for 20 years to become a valid claim. As such, I see no claim of either in your case. That means, if the neighbor says get off his land, it would be a good idea to do just that.
that is determined by local ordinance but often times, many areas do not allow a fence on the highway right of way. Some require a further set back than that as well. That is irrelevant though. Regardless of where his fence is, it does not give you the right to drive on his property, even if it is within the highway right of way. It is his property and if the government holding the ROW wishes to use the full right of way, as long as it falls within the rights afforded them by the law, that's fine. You can't use it though just because the government may be able to.
How close to the road can he put his fence in the right of way?
If you cannot come to some agreement with the neighbor and you cannot maneuver your 5th wheel in or out of your drive, I guess you will have to park it elsewhere.
