    Unhappy squatter's rights in Raleigh NC

    What is the name of your state? North Carolina

    I have a neighbor who has a flower garden I have known is on my property partially but I have never given permission to put it there.

    Recently another event came up causing us to look at the actual property line which is about 10 feet closer to his home (away from mine) than I realized.

    The garden has been there for about 3 years....just some pine straw on the area that is actually on my property.

    What is the length of time in North Carolina for Squatter's rights?

    And, where can I get the legal documentation to back it up. (Should i call the Attorney general in North Carolina?)

    Thanks for your help.

    It's called Adverse Possession.

    go to this link [url]http://www.cals.ncsu.edu/wq/LandPreservationNotebook/statutes/nc/adversepossession.htm[/url] and scroll down until you find the specific passage. It has all the information you will need to protect yourself.

    Why thank you sir...but fear does wonders for the old research bug....

    I just kept imagining you standing over my shoulder telling me "Get it right or I'll axe you"
