Property Law

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.
