Hire an attorney to handle this before it becomes ugly. Your survey will be very helpful.


Getting a survey is a good start, however, there are many types of surveys. Make sure that you get a staked boundary survey, which will establish where the boundaries of your property are. Perhaps by having boundary stakes installed and showing your neighbor the survey, this issue will resolve itself. If not, you may have to file a lawsuit against your neighbor.
