Property border line

Posted on: 26th Dec, 2006 10:29 am
I own the property for 3 years and the property tax record shows western border line 7 ft eastward from the neighbor's fence. The fence has been there for more than 7 years. Hwo owns those 7 ft of land?
Hi Guest,

Welcome to the forums.

If you have used the 7 ft land for a considerable number of years, then under the law of Adverse Possession, you may be able to claim the land. But the period of using the land based on which the law will allow you to possess the land depends on your state laws. So, if you can tell me in which state you reside, I shall be able to give a better idea.

Thanks,

Sara

The property belongs to your neighbor as mentioned in the property tax record.
