Every situation is different, sometimes a written agreement is all that is needed to stop adverse posession from moving forward, sometimes it is too late.

Best to get a good lawyer either way.

Recently sold a house whose driveway was on the neighbors property.

It was an educational process that is part of the territory.

In this instance, did the 'city stuff' got everything signed, survey updated, ownership defined...and now I'll be listing the neighbors property. The problem originated from the days the developer owned the property. House sold many times, and surveyed, before I got stuck with resolving a pre-existing problem not caused by the action of any of the previous owners.

Every time you get to meet a property owner, it is audition time.

There is no one solution. The offending party should be required to move their fence, building, etc. Most people won't agree to do a boundary line adjustment, and even if the do, it's doubtful they will agree on price. And the lender/lien holder might have to agree first, and do an appraisal. The history has to looked at as well. Is this an old metes and bounds survey? How large are lots involved? Does the ofending lot also have set back requirements?

i have run into this many times. very often in established communities. i have never had to go to court. the owner simply has it fixed.. they try to go to the licensed party (if they did work) otherwise it gets done. one time i let them use it, witha signed statement that they acknlowdge that it isnt theirs. doint a lot line adj isnt cheap... fyi
