Protecting Mutual Property Interests

Neighbor disputes are important to real estate law because everyone has neighbors. A number of situations can arise that cause distress between neighbors. However, most neighbor disputes fall into the categories of boundary disputes and animal disputes.

Boundary Disputes

Boundaries are something written down on a map, often by surveyors or city planners. Though they are intangible, they are very real and a very common source of disputes between neighbors. If a boundary is in dispute, then processes like building fences or erecting other structures on what is presumed to be their property can become nearly impossible to accomplish. Resolving a boundary dispute is also not as simple as visiting the city records office. Boundaries can shift, particularly if a property owner has yielded the use of their land for a period of time. Furthermore, different laws control certain fringe cases, such as if a tree grows on one yard but hangs over and drops seeds on another yard.

Animal Disputes

Sometimes it is not just a neighbor who is causing strife. Oftentimes, an animal can just as readily be the source of an issue between neighbors. Animal disputes center on a domestic animal or pet that is owned by a neighbor. Though animals can be taught and make decisions, ultimately they are the property of their owner. Therefore, if an animal causes damage or injury to someone else, it is the owner’s responsibility to compensate the victim. Animal disputes range from injuries caused by a dog bite to property damage inflicted by a horse.
