Property law issues can arise when there is a need to determine who owns what rights to real property. Common property law cases involve quiet title actions, easements, adverse possession and nuisance claims.
Quiet Title Actions: A legal action to establish one's title to land. Can occur in cases where there is a missing document in the chain of title, when a neighbor's driveway, home or buildings encroach on your land, or when one is claiming title by adverse possession. These cases are time-sensitive so make sure you seek legal advice as soon as possible to protect your rights.
Easements: An easement is the right to use the land of another. Commonly used for access purposes or utilities. Easements can also be for light, air and solar.
Adverse Possession: A way to acquire title to the land of another by possession for a statutory period of time subject to certain conditions. Adverse possession claims are time-sensitive so don't wait to seek legal advice.
Nuisance: Nuisances are conditions that interfere with the use and enjoyment of one's property.
