Sicklerville, NJ asked in Land Use & Zoning and Real Estate Law for New Jersey

Q: I moved in my home and 1.4 acre of my land is being farmed by the previous owners family. What should I do to reclaim it

My house I bought sits on 4 acres. The seller inherited the land from his grandparents. My next door neighbor is the previous owners brother who owns an identical lot to mine. Behind my property is a planted field with corn by the previous owners uncle. The guy I bought it from used to let his uncle plant in about an 1.4 acres of what is now my property. I have plans for this land and it's my property now. How should I approach this.
