Right of Way

Right of Way

Right of Way

I have a home/small lot  . i built a drive way next to my home one foot from the neighbors garage and up next to there privacy fence. i removed a large tree  and stump for the drive to be installed. I have been renovating this home for three months and last week the neighbor informed me that I have built 4' on to his property. so I removed his tree and built three ft. onto his lot... how best can I resolve this

RE: Right of Way

Go to the county courthouse and obtain the lot locations and have a surveyor come to your property and mark the property lines.  Also, get ready to start digging, because most local building codes don't allow for construction of a structure one   foot from a property line and your neighbor is probably correct.
