Lakeland, FL asked in Real Estate Law and Land Use & Zoning for Florida

Q: Any help on getting a neighbor to stop hooking up his fence on my property.

I am getting a new survey and nobody will look at old survey. The fence is on my property then connects with the neighbors. And every time I unhook the fence he will hook it back up on my property. The neighbor has owned the property for three years. And I have wrote him letters and told him to unhook from my property.

A: Is it your fence or did the previous owner of the neighbor's property place the fence on your property. If you own the fence and he is refusing to remove his fence from your fence then you will need to consult with a real estate lawyer to send him a letter. If that doesn't work you may have to take him to court.
