Title Issues and Boundary Line Disputes
There are times when landowners discover that there are title issues that prevent them from selling or mortgaging their property. These issues develop because of errors made in the chain of title from prior transfers, errors in the legal descriptions, probate claims, tax liens, just to name a few. Sellers of real property generally cannot sell their property without clearing these issues up. The Fabian Law Firm handles these matters regularly and has the expertise to track down and correct the problems that are encumbering the title of real property.
Boundary line disputes generally come up when property owners are attempting to fence in their property or sell off parts of larger parcels that they own. Land surveys will discover boundary line encumbrances and infractions. A typical example is a client that unknowingly had a driveway going over their neighbor’s property. We work with all the parties involved, including the surveyor, and work out equitable agreements that rectify the situation. If an agreement cannot be worked out between the parties, we will then take it to the next level and commence litigation.
