I inherited a home which I had to refinance in May 2012. Before I could have the property surveyed the next door neighbor erected a fence between our lots, without speaking to me. I believe he did this because I had to call codes on him because he used his lot to store junk trailers and old lumber, etc. and it was an eyesore. I believe that it is 5 foot on my property line. I have been busy with family members who have had cancer I am getting ready to have the property surveyed and want to know if my time limit has expired as I believe he is on my property line and we have never spoke at all about anything including property. I do not even know the man's name other than he lives across the street.
You probably have time, but move quickly to get the survey and consult a real estate lawyer practicing in your county. Neither of you are good neighbors.
