Dealing with unforeseen inheritance disputes

For the sake of argument, let us assume for a moment that you were recently involved in an estate resolution that left you with real estate holdings in North Georgia. After you cleared probate and satisfied the necessary ownership and taxation requirements, you would probably think that you had enough of the state's courtrooms to last you for quite a while. Unfortunately, your neighbor might have different thoughts on the matter.

At The Roberts Law Firm, P.C., we often see real estate boundary disputes that arise as a result of the property in question changing hands. While many of our clients are prepared for this conflict, especially if they negotiated an unconventional sale, such as a foreclosure or short sale, there are some who have a little more trouble navigating the issue. In particular, individuals already emotionally exasperated by protracted estate issues seem to want their border disputes resolved efficiently.

To that end, we make a priority of drawing a line in the sand, as it were, when it comes to border disagreements. The official boundary of our client's property might be lost, and in some cases these delineations were never formally recorded in the first place. However, we are often able to reference reams of case law and state statutes pertinent to any given case. 

It is a shame that some unscrupulous landowners see our clients' transactions as a way to expand their own territory. We make a point to stand our ground in these situations, prepared with legal research and determination to defend the land of those we represent.
