Land Encroachment

Encroachment of Land IssuesWhat is an Encroachment? Generally, no person has the right to build any structure on his own land so that part of the structure, no matter how small, encroaches or extends onto the land of another. If one person's property extends beyond his boundaries and encroaches on the adjoining land of another, this is an encroachment of land. It doesn't matter whether the encroachment is above or below the surface of the land. A New York City encroachment attorney can help you determine whether something is an encroachment.

The consequences of encroachment of land can range from simple nuisances, like tree branches hanging over your neighbor's land, to being sued for actual damages or removal of the encroachment. Depending on whether the injury to the land is permanent or temporary, damage amounts and remedies can vary. Property law is complicated. The laws and regulations governing encroachment of land issues vary by state, and your rights and obligations can differ depending upon the municipality. A good encroachment lawyer in New York City can help advise you of those rights and duties.

For example, when a client is purchasing a house or other real estate, title searches and surveys will be obtained and reviewed to see if any encroachments exist regarding the property. The disclosure of the existence of an encroachment may result in a transaction being cancelled or a lender refusing to approve a mortgage.

As a New York City encroachment lawyer, I represent both commercial and residential clients in real estate matters. This representation includes the purchase or sale of single or multi-family homes, condominiums, cooperatives, and litigation. I work closely with my clients in these matters to advance and protect their interests.

Client Reviews
Jules Haas helped me with managing the process in probate court for my father's estate through to its completion upon the sale of my father's house. He was knowledgeable, efficient, and effective in submitting documentation to the probate court, explaining procedures to me, and advising me as to the progress of my case. His support staff was also very helpful. He made what for me created so much anxiety into something manageable where I could see progress every step of the way. His fees were very reasonable. I am super grateful to him for all the help he has provided and strongly recommend his services.
