My question involves real estate located in the State of: North Carolina
About 4 years ago my neighbor built a fence along our common property line. We did not pay much attention at the time as the fence is mostly hidden behind large evergreens we had planted when we bought the house new 8 years ago.
Now we are looking to upgrade our landscaping and we had to have a survey done for our HOA review to ensure the plan stays on our property. The surveyor, from the firm that set the original plats for the entire subdivision back in 2003, found the neighbor's fence is over the property line by up to 30 inches, for about 15 feet.
We sent the neighbors a certified letter asking them to move the fence within 30 days. That time is now up and they have not moved the fence nor advised of any disposition, issue, etc. (we are not on speaking terms with the neighbors and they have several aggressive dogs that make approaching the house not appropriate).
We would like direction on next steps to push the neighbors to action.
