30 Years Experience Representing Clients Like You
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.
