Understanding Your Property Rights

When there is a disagreement regarding who owns a piece of land and can subsequently make use of it, the resulting dispute can be a significant drain on your resources and energy. Harty Williams has worked with clients facing these difficult situations throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Washington D.C., Delaware and New York.

Do I Need The Title To Be Considered The Owner?

When someone owns a piece of land, they have what is called the “title.” This means you have legal rights as to who occupies it. While this may seem simple, there are many nuances to property ownership. For example, boundary disputes and land use and zoning disputes are fairly common. An experienced attorney will be able to examine these differences and come up with the best possible result. We will always be honest and upfront about our findings and what we can do for your case.

Handling Adverse Possession Claims

Adverse possession is another area of the law that requires a knowledgeable attorney. When someone who has no legal ownership physically occupies and uses land, they may have the rights to it based on how long they have been there. The legal owners have a certain period of time to evict this person. If they don’t, they may lose the title to the property. Each state’s laws are different, which is where our attorneys can help you understand options specific to your situation.
