    The history here is what? How did the mistake as to the boundary line arise? How did you come to know about it - perhaps only from the survey? When was the fence installed?

How have you and prior owners treated the area at issue - as if it was yours, theirs, joint....

    i bought the house 2 years ago the house used to belong to my wifes grandparents i was going to build a fence myself but i was not going to build it on the property line a couple of feet back from it so i got it surveyed now there is a fence that has been there since the early 1900's from the old school house and thats where he built the fence now the law says he needed to give me written permission to build it and had to wait 30 days for me to agree to it he never did.My neighbor to the north and to the south said it was my property and the survey now says it the deed says i go back that far and i have been to the court house and did reserch too.
