You should have been notified of the zoning change. A zoning request might have to made with Williamson County after you examine your local zoning ordinances and procedures.

I have an acre in a rural area and I've lived there for about 4 years. I just now got my property surveyed and discovered my property goes back farther than I realized. I have farm land all around me and it seems like part of my land has been incorporated into the land behind me thats used for... View More
You and your predecessors in title have probably acquiesced to a new boundary between the adjacent tracts. Apparently you did not get a survey prior to the deed execution. If the boundary is ascertainable on the ground, you have probably lost regardless what your legal description says. But...View More
I asked 911. They said only 2 houses need to be changed to stay in numerical order. My neighbor said no & 911 said they want them to agree. No 666 numbers are ever assigned. Buyers say no based on the 666 address. Help. I need to have it changed to move. Is there anything I can do legally? I... View More
Different Counties handle 911 and zoning issues differently. Hire an attorney in the applicable County to ask for the change in street address. Provide an appropriate alternate address. You may have to go before a County Commission or a Zoning Board. The County Mayor will probably be...View More
There is no simple one-size-fits-all answer to your question. It might be waste. It might not be waste. Sometimes cutting down trees constitutes an improvement to the property. Other times not. And improvement or not is not the only factor that must be considered.
You will need an attorney to sue in Chancery for an Injunction against their interference with your lawful use of the Easement. A title search of both adjoining tracts should be made first. Almost no chance of money recovery. If you do nothing, you lose the row.
We are waiting to get back topo + boundary surveys but, according to the GIS, our brand new build (and all our neighbors brand new builds) were built on (or *way* over) each other's property lines. It's not like the builder got the whole plan shifted x amount of feet, everyone's... View More
Either a 3 year or 4 year Statute of Limitations probably applies to your cause of action. Hire an attorney now to examine the builder's, seller's and/or surveyor's negligence. Hopefully you have not busted the SOL. Boundary Line Agreements for adjoining landowners are...View More
Their was a Warrant deed in place to my father in law and it is now our Tract 2 on our deed. The county’s tax accessor graph picture was wrong and he used that picture to have a deed made and for the 1st time called it an easement. The property he bought did belong to an uncle that passed away.... View More
The best way to determine where boundary lines are is to use a proper survey - not a tax map online. If his deed shows encroachment, even if an easement, then you run the risk of a future adverse possession claim. Consult an attorney to review the deeds to determine your options. You may need to...View More
I want to purchase land in Tennessee on a mountain where the drive to the property is a few miles of gravel road put in by the land developer. The road is NOT county maintained. The title company has heard the developer plans to file bankruptcy and is no longer maintaining the roads.... View More
Title Insurance only covers a few problems, and never ensures that the access is maintained. Many Title problems that may arise are not insured risks. And making a valid claim on a policy is very difficult. Have you searched the Title yet, or even actually read the legal description and...View More
No legal description of the encumbered property must be recorded with the legal description. However some type of notice to the world where the restrictions apply should be of record, as otherwise the covenants will be worthless and unenforceable. Hire a competent attorney to at least draft a...View More
I just finished building my new home. In front of my house a man is bringing in a trailer park. There is going to be 5 trailers in a 2.5 acre lot. This will make my value of the home go down can I sue for making my resale value go down. I had no idea this was going to happen or I would have not... View More
You might check the Zoning of the Tract for compliance. Septic Systems for 5 MHs on a couple acres might be a problem. If in violation, call the County. Or there may be a change in zoning going on now where you oppose it. You definitely want to check Access to that Tract, which may directly...View More
You will want to ascertain the Boundary as accurately as possible. Read your's and the adjacent owner's Deeds. Usually you will want to make the trees part of the fence, but you can probably cut them. But do not be surprised if a Boundary Dispute erupts.
Apparently you do not know your boundaries at this point. Your allowing a house to be built on your land without protest will be used against you. Hire a competent surveyor now, then take the plat to a competent attorney. It will be difficult and expensive, with the minimum result of a Boundary...View More
Usually a landowner backs off a surveyed boundary a few inches or so. But it is not required and encroachments happen alot. Suing for trespass or an injunction will be expensive. Unless there is a boundary dispute, or physical damage to your land, it is not worth the trouble.
If it is on your own property, and noone else has a joint easement there, you should have no problem. If fire or emts complain, I would ignore them. You might call McKenzie City and ask if there are any relevant municipal codes that apply.

The golf course is in bankruptcy and they told us the bankruptcy judge can reverse the restriction. Can a judge do that. Also the golf club owners are threatening suits if we POA do not lift the restriction. If the restrictions are lifted we fear they will build condos and who knows what else!
It is possible that he can prove ownership. Just because it is on what is your land does not mean it is a fixture. It may be easily moved. Either party may possibly sue for conversion depending on what happens.
My neighbor put 3 or 4 loads of dirt on his property to prevent the water run off to back up onto my land. The dirt is not on the county right of way it is all on his land. This causes the water to back up on my land whenever it rains. It is a county road but I do not know who paid for the tile.... View More
From your limited facts, it sounds to me like your neighbor has created what's known as a private nuisance. His modification to his land has interfered with yours. You may need to sue him to abate the nuisance. Consult with local counsel to determine your options.
