Hi! We have been living in our house for the past 12 years. We have a front yard garden, it's been growing and taken care of by us and our previouse house owner for at least 20 years. We need to fix our retaining wall recently so we did a property survey. It shows that a small piece of land of our front garden falls into our neighbor's property, and a small piece of land of our neighbor's backyard falls into our property. At this time, our neighbor asks us to remove the plants in our front garden that fall into their property. However, we have been taken very good care of our plants for the past at least 20 years and we want to keep them. What legal rights do we have to protect these plants please? Thank you!
JA: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?
Customer: We learned about adverse prosession in GA. However, we haven't done anything yet to start the adverse prosession process. Do we still have legal rights to protect these plants?
JA: Have you talked to a Georgia lawyer about this?
Customer: We are consulting you now....
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: Our neighbor is not in a good relationship with us.
