A: You will probably have to sue the other adjoining landowner for a Boundary Line Dispute. It will be difficult and expensive. It does sound like you have an expert witness, and I hope he can persuade the Judge. Quiet Title, Ejectment and Trespass may be additional causes of actions. Hire a NC attorney that litigates real property disputes. You are not allowed to wait forever to file suit.
