Disputes Between Neighbors

While everyone hopes to enjoy a great relationship with their neighbors, unfortunately this is not always possible, because not all neighbors demonstrate respect for others’ property rights. I handle a wide variety of disputes between neighbors, including:

  • Trespass actions
  • Adverse possession claims
  • Easement and right-of-way disputes
  • Prescriptive easements
  • Boundary line disputes
  • Title disputes, including claims against title insurance companies to insure and defend
  • Actions under Article 15 of the New York Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law, sometimes called “quiet title” or “bar claim” actions
  • Disputes regarding the interpretation and/or reformation of deeds
  • Disputes regarding restrictive covenants
  • Disputes regarding conservation easements
  • Disputes regarding unauthorized cutting of trees or shrubs
  • Nuisance (i.e., property uses that disturb neighbors and interfere with their use and enjoyment of their property)
  • Claims arising from flooding and poor drainage
  • Actions for neighbors’ zoning violations
