Encroachment, Easement and Boundary Disputes

Whether you own personal or commercial real estate, encroachments, easements, and other boundary disputes can be a huge hassle. Easements can spark conflict between neighbors, lead to confusion regarding roadway maintenance, and cause obstacles for development projects. Conflicts concerning real estate can lead to uncomfortable situations and even litigation.

An experienced attorney can help a property owner to understand the full spectrum of that owner's rights, whether the matter involves asserting rights that another denies or defending against falsely asserted rights. In some areas of property law owners must proactively assert their rights in order to successfully prevent others from encroaching upon them. Other areas of the law allow owners to alter their rights so long as both parties agree.

The attorneys at White and Bright understand the nuances of property law and have experience advising clients on dealing with property disputes. Our attorneys are able to offer advice on the full spectrum of options open to a property owner, including agreements, settlements, and litigation. We have assisted clients with drafting and enforcing road maintenance agreements, easements, and boundaries, represented clients in boundary disputes and other property related litigation, and secured the release of easements and other encumbrances over clients' property.
