What falls under the umbrella of property disputes?

| Nov 15, 2017 | Neighbor Disputes |

In Seattle, as residents like you know, there isn’t a whole lot of elbow room. With living quarters packed relatively close together, the possibility of property disputes may rise. Riach Gese Jacobs, PLLC, works to provide people like you with the information you need to know what could be considered a property dispute.

Fence-line or boundary issues often come to mind first when someone is thinking of property disputes. These particular problems can include where your fence placement will be if it’s being redone, but it also includes replacing fences. Some people may not know that you need to have consent from all sides of a fence to have it replaced or redone.

Property use is another dispute area. For example, if you put a shed in your backyard that your neighbors can see from the street or from their yard and it’s deemed unsightly, you may actually be required to paint it to match your house despite it being in your yard, on your property. Of course, this also extends to potentially hazardous activities like curing or barbequing meats, or additions like trampolines.

Speaking of trampolines, remodeling or construction disputes are also big issues. Neighbors may have something to say about that pool you want to put in your yard, and you may have to listen in some cases.

No matter what sort of property or neighbor dispute you’re dealing with, you may do better with some professional guidance. Take a look at the link, which will take you to our web page on property disputes. In learning more about these issues, you may be better equipped to handle them when they occur, protecting yourself and your property in the process.
