Post: Adverse Possession
Posted by Sheila Luke on 11/09/10
We bought our home 5+ years ago. After purchasing a
surveyor said the neighboring property is 20' on to our
property. The subdivision was done at a time when family
didn't have to do subdivision. The boundaries have been
there for sometime, trees are planted on boundary and home
was built in 1988. Township put diversion ditches on both
side borders of our property (all this before neighbors had
survey showing all lots shift west 20') Pictures, aerials
all clearly define our lines. Can I file for adverse
possession myself? If not what would the cost be to me? I
need to do this quickly as the property next to me has sold
and the company whom bought is putting in a pumping station.
