Help! My neighbor has built a fence entirely on my land. How can I settle this without thousands of dollars in court/ lawyer fees? The neighbor & my husband looked for the property line marker but didn't locate it. She then went ahead and put her landscaping in an area we thought was ours. We argued, she called a surveyor. The survey showed the land is ours. We marked the line with timbers. Upon returning from a vacation a few weeks ago, we found a new fence that had been built entirely on our side of the property line, by about 1 foot!!
My husband & I want to take it down since it's on our land. Can we be sued for that? We intend to write her a letter demanding she remove it and then remove it ourselves. Do you have any other suggestions? This has been going on for a year & is getting$
