Practical Solutions for Adjoining Landowners

Sharing a property line can result in stressful and contentious relationships between adjoining landowners. Disputes over matters such as noise, fences, retaining walls, trees, and drainage can become contentious and disruptive to home life or business endeavors. At the Law Offices of Edwin Fahlen, we attempt to find quick, practical, and cost-effective solutions for our clients.

Disputes Involving Real Estate Easements

Real estate easements are common disputes between adjoining landowners. Our experience and knowledge of real estate law allows us to conduct a detailed easement analysis when an issue arises between adjoining property owners. Our goal is to provide our clients an early and satisfactory resolution of all real estate disputes.

Prescriptive Easements & Adverse Possession Disputes

Often, landowners unwittingly allow a small portion of their land be used by a neighbor without complaint. When that supposed “use” of that property is discovered, a dispute ensues. Cases involving easement by prescription and adverse possession require the services of an experienced real estate lawyer. We can help negotiate, mediate, or, if necessary, litigate the resolution of these types of real estate disputes.

Drainage Disputes between Adjoining Property Owners

Sooner or later, most real estate attorneys are asked: “Can my neighbor drain their water onto my property?” Issues involving water drainage frequently arise in Orange County and Southern California property owners who live in hillside homes or below hillside properties, or adjoining elevated properties. Natural water flow (local creeks & brooks) and/or storm water drainage problems can range from minor aggravations due to wet soil to major headaches such as home flooding, mud flows, foundation damage from hydraulic pressure and the undermining of foundations.
