Property boundary question with neighbors house for sale

Answer

A survey only shows where the deeded property lines are. The thing about Adverse Possession is that is pertains to property that is outside of the lines, and that's why we have a problem. And before you take advice from anybody about how you can negotiate this to your satisfaction, you'd better talk to somebody who will defend that advice in court, and that means, an attorney.

Property boundary question with neighbors house for sale

Please feel free to write up an offer subject to inspection, and please provide proof of funds from a verifiable source.All the best,
