A: Apparently you have already bought the property without complaining about an encroachment. You also failed to put a legal description from the new survey in your Deed. The boundary has probably been acquiesced to at this point. You may wish to complain about your attorney if you had one. Obviously this matter should have been addressed prior to Deed execution, or walked away from. You may suffer problems later, which may require a Boundary Line Agreement of record.
