Long story short, I had a huge disagreement with my neighbor today (brought on by other things). He said my fence was too close to his garage, and he wants me to take it down. All of it. He didn’t know exactly where the property line is, he just kept saying “about there”. So now he wants me to take down a 12 foot long fence between our garages, even though he doesn’t know exactly where the property line is.
As far as I know, the end of the fence is on my property, even though it is only 6" from his garage. And he even gave us verbal permission to put it up before hand 4 years ago.
The plat maps I have from when we bought the house 5 years ago are pretty useless, one map shows us having a square property, the other one shows having an L shaped property. According to one we own his garage, according to the other a different neighbor owns part of our backyard.
What does it cost to hire a surveyor to find one property line? And are his findings legally standing?
I am going to the town hall tomorrow to try to figure this out, but I fear we will have to pay to have a surveyor come out and figure out whom owns what and where the property line is.
