Could issues with your property boundaries lead to litigation?

Any individual or business that purchases real estate probably likes to think that the boundaries of that property can be readily identified. Unfortunately, that isn't always true. While one property owner may believe that a certain boundary line applies, a neighbor may disagree. So, could issues with property boundaries lead to litigation in Nevada?

The short answer, in many cases, is a simple "yes." Why? Well, for starters, there is always the possibility that a neighbor may be encroaching on your property under a mistaken belief about where the property boundary is located. That could result in a structure being built over the demarcation of a property line or a use that is crossing over the boundary line. If such an encroachment is not done by some agreement by the parties, for example, a real estate dispute could erupt.

One way to begin to address such an incident is to have a clear understanding of where property boundaries are located. This may require the services of a surveyor, who can locate certain monuments or other points of reference to draw up a sketch of where your property boundaries are. This can be compelling evidence in any resultant litigation.

Of course, even if a property boundary dispute does arise with a neighbor, it may be best to attempt to reach an out-of-court agreement. After all, no one wants to live or do business next to a neighbor who might hold a grudge because of courtroom litigation. Unfortunately, in some cases, that may be the only option.
