Confronting Easement And Boundary Disputes
Easements and boundaries often come up in legal contexts involving any of the following:
- Clarifying, defining and/or determining rights and parameters
- Negotiating and making agreements
- Resolving disputes
- Recovering compensation for damages
- Forcing another party to perform or cease from actions
Facilitating Clear Agreements
Duggan Pawlowski & Cooke LLP in Buffalo has helped many clients resolve matters such as the following involving easements and boundaries:
- Grant or obtain rights to use portions of adjacent properties (such as to fish in a pond, use water from a stream, drive over another owner’s land or erect a sign overshadowing another property)
- Reach agreements regarding building, dismantling, altering or repairing a fence or wall
- Resolve disagreements regarding interference, obstructions, encroachment, use or maintenance of an easement or boundary
- Prevent situations between neighbors that might lead to an unwanted adverse possession action over time
- Confirm the fate of an easement or boundary after the death of one party, after a conveyance of property or during a state of abandonment of the property
You may need a lawyer’s help to establish legal rights related to an easement or to clarify responsibilities for maintenance of a wall, fence or driveway that includes a boundary line.
