Neighbor threatening to remove and dump my personal items on disputed property line
Received notice form a neighbor with whom I have a property line issue dispute.
He is threatening to move my personal items stored and dump the items if I do not move them by end of the following day.
What kind of reply should I have to this neighbor? The property line dispute is over my attained right to this space thru an adverse possession as 10 years have passed.
Can you help me with this?
***"New York Real Actions and Proceedings Law § 543 : Adverse possession; how affected by acts across a boundary line
1. Notwithstanding any other provision of this article, the existence of de minimus non-structural encroachments including, but not limited to, fences, hedges, shrubbery, plantings, sheds and non-structural walls, shall be deemed to be permissive and non-adverse.
2. Notwithstanding any other provision of this article, the acts of lawn mowing or similar maintenance across the boundary line of an adjoining landowner's property shall be deemed permissive and non-adverse.***"
I suggest that you hire an attorney to start a declaratory judgment proceeding to declare that piece of property to be yours and selmitenously file for a TRO to prevent your neighbor from removing your property.
