Even after you have signed the contracts to purchase your new home and everything is finalized, there is still potential to run into snags involving your property lines or easements. Over the passing of time, property lines often become blurred and unclear for a variety of reasons, and neighbors can begin to encroach on your property boundaries either intentionally or unintentionally. Some neighbors may even attempt to take your property through a process called adverse possession, or squatter’s rights.
Along with utilizing a reputable lawyer for contracts, easements, and deeds, it is important to have a legal professional available if you purchase a property in a Homeowners’ Association (HOA).
