Disputes about land ownership can happen when individuals are unclear about their land and zoning. These issues can happen between neighbors in a residential neighborhood. Your neighbor may want to put up a fence that encompasses their yard. However, you may realize that their fence is on your lawn somehow or that the gate opens up onto your property instead of theirs. This can cause a reason for a land and zoning issue. Neighbors should remain on their own property in order to avoid disturbing one another or infringing on someone else’s property. These issues can also arise between commercials properties, such as local businesses. A business may try selling products on the sidewalk near their store. However, you may argue that that sidewalk is considered to be your property. These disputes must be resolved in order for businesses near each other to remain cordial.

If you face a land and zoning issue, you should speak to a professional attorney to handle the situation more confidently. They can guide you through the process and explain more about the laws involved in the situation. When creating a plan, attorneys know how to make sure it gets approved by state and local government agencies. This can be useful since you will not have to continuously correct mistakes that are made after getting a disapproval.
