Unfortunately a few people will experience a property dispute. This means you could have bought a piece of property, but the property lines were never exactly divulged during the sale. Your next-door neighbor could demand that he or she owns two or 3 feet into your yard. This could mean a very nasty battle.
There is no way you are going to be able to handle this type of problem without getting a lawyer. It is highly recommended you get a real estate lawyer that knows all about Indianapolis law. Your lawyer is going to be able to advise you on how to handle the situation. You need to be sure that you have all of your property information in front of you so that when you go to see your lawyer for your first visit you are able to give your lawyer all of the information.
The Process Of Waiting
You might end up having to have your land surveyed so that your lawyer can show your next-door neighbor who owns what. By this time more than likely your neighbor has also gotten himself or herself a lawyer. That is okay because the lawyers can handle the situation and get it resolved properly. It is a good idea that you do not do any type of yard work Intel the property dispute has been handled. Of course you can mow the lawn, but doing any type of yard work such as planting trees or flowers is not recommended.
Try to be as pleasant as you can to your next her neighbor without creating a hostile environment. If there is any type of activity that is not correct, or seems as though it is nasty, it is a good idea to call your lawyer immediately and start documenting all of the behavior.
