Boundary Disputes

Often properties are sold without a certified survey and what the parties think is their property may not actually be correct. The legal description on a deed to any property describes the boundaries of the property either by a metes and bounds description (Start at point A and describe each side of the property back to the starting point) or by reference to a platted subdivision that will have the description in the plat document. Many times there will be apparent boundaries that are not in tune with the legal descriptions. Boundary disputes can be a simple as getting a certified survey and adjusting the boundary or as complicated as deciding whether a building on the wrong property has to be moved.
