My question involves real estate located in the State of: Texas
I own a few acres of pasture and do not own any animals. A few years ago someone erected a barbed wire fence on my property and I assumed it was the adjoining property owner who has livestock. In 2006 I had a survey conducted and learned that the fence was over my property line a yard for about 500 ft. I learned this year that the person responsible for erecting the fence was the POA/Executrix for the adjoining property owner on the opposite side. The adjoining property owner passed away this year and I'm an heir to their estate. The executrix who was keeping animals on my relative's land (and also on mine since there is no fence between) claimed that they did not know that I owned the property.
I have written the executrix to request that the overbounds fence be removed and rebuilt as an expense to the estate.
What chances do I have to resolve this legally without a lawyer?
Does a 4 year statute of limitations apply in this situation? It seems absurd if so since they did not have the right to build on my property to begin with.
Can I destroy the overbounds fence if I can't resolve this with the executrix and the other property owner with cattle doesn't want to pay to build that section?
