Neighbors

Welcome to the Neighbors section of FindLaw's Real Estate Center. Neighborhoods form dynamic communities with unique personalities, since a group of unrelated people must live close together. Sometimes the members in the group are friendly and don’t fight over boundaries or excessive noise, but just as often neighbors enter into legal disputes with each other. Here you will find information on property rights and boundary issues, plus tips on handling common types of neighbor disputes outside the courtroom. Download FindLaw's Guide to Neighbor Relations [PDF] for a look at the types of issues that frequently come up between neighbors, and what steps to take.
