If a neighbor has encroached onto your property and the two of you haven’t been able to quickly resolve the situation, it may be time to contact a lawyer. If you do not promptly resolve the dispute, you may face serious consequences when it’s time to sell your house or try to buy insurance. You may also be facing an easement dispute: an argument over shared use of land, such as a driveway on your property. Additionally, these disputes can often become emotionally charged, with you and your neighbor experiencing lasting negative effects on your relationship.
Kootenai County attorney James Bendell has over three decades of trial experience, and has successfully represented clients in a variety of boundary dispute claims. In the event of an easement or boundary dispute, James can help you resolve the matter through negotiation, formal mediation or, if necessary, litigation. He will act as your representative to your neighbor, and attempt to negotiate a mutually agreeable solution to your dispute. Once the dispute is resolved, he will ensure that your title documents are updated to reflect any changes to protect your interests in the future.
It is critical to take action in the early stages of a boundary dispute to fully protect your interests and property.
