  3. Land Use and Zoning: Re: What Happens if Adverse Possession Reduced a Lot Below the Minimum Permitted Size

    I see a moderator moved this thread. I originally posted in the "debate the issues" forum because it was a hypothetical, and not a real life question. Just for full disclosure.
  4. Land Use and Zoning: What Happens if Adverse Possession Reduced a Lot Below the Minimum Permitted Size

    A court determines that adverse possession rights have ripened for the benefit of Neighbor A. As a result, Neighbor B's property shrinks from 1.6 acres to 1.4.

    The municipal ordinance minimum lot...
  5. Surveys: Re: Neighbor's Survey Stakes are Two Feet Into My Yard Beyond the Boundary Fence

    As a surveyor, two things bother me about the OP's post. 1, "the surveyors were in a hurry", and stakes were set across an obvious occupation line, the fence.

    I'm not saying that the fence is or...
  6. Fences and Walls: Re: Encroachment/Improperly Placed Fence Letter

  7. Creation of an Easement: Re: Who Drafts the Deed Conveying an Easement

  8. Trespassing: Re: Police Not Honoring My Land Survey, They Told Me to Get


    I've seen many axles used as corners, especially by landowners trying to recycle their junkers which they parked "on the back 40." I have absolutely no problem holding an axle for a corner,...
  9. Adverse Possession: Re: Adverse Possession-What is the Real Truth About This

    AP in NC is 20 years; your driveway has existed for 16, so it appears you have not met the statutory period for AP, or even prescription.

    Boundary Agreements: Re: Survey Stakes vs. Dimensions

    The short story, and the general rule of thumb is that monuments hold over measurements.

    You have demonstrated that rule very effectively by this quote: "when i run a string from the stakes...
  12. Boundary Agreements: Re: Easement Shown on Plat but Not Listed on Deed

    More than likely, no.

    In general, if a plat is recorded in conjunction with the deed, then anything on that plat is considered to be a part of the record as if it were on the deed itself.
  13. Fences and Walls: Re: Neighbor Refuses to Discuss Replacement of Falling Down Fence

    If it's on your side, and is your fence, it is likely...
  14. Boundary Agreements: Re: Neighbor is Replacing Driveway That Butts Up to Mine

    Along with what yyz0 has written, keep in mind that your City or Town either owns or has a public right of way where the road right of way line is located.

    Often, the driveway "flare" will be in...

    You can feel free to ask why the easement is located with the current configuration, no one here can give you that answer since the possibilities are legion.

    Easement Use and Enforcement: Re: Easements - Fence is Over

    Do you have a signed and stamped boundary survey produced by a Professional Land Surveyor licensed to practice in Indiana? I'm guessing the answer is no.

    Easement Use and Enforcement: Re: Easements

    And now I have more questions than answers for you.

    Easement Use and Enforcement: Re: Easements

    Easement Use and Enforcement: Re: Easements

    Adverse Possession: Re: Does My Deed, Paid Land Survey and City Hall Documents "Hold Any Water"

    The assumption that the lathe was the boundary by both landowners is an almost classic case of acquiescence, a doctrine already mentioned by JK. But, as JK also mentioned, the statutory period (15...
