Adverse Possession / Boundary Disputes

It is frequently the case that boundary disputes erupt between neighboring land owners in Wisconsin.  Often neighbors function for years believing they understand where a boundary is, only to learn after a survey is done (for instance) that the parties have been wrong the whole time.  Sometimes only one party is confused as to where the property or boundary line lay and insists he/she has rights in land which is not truly theirs.

Under these circumstances Wisconsin’s law of adverse possession will often apply.  The analysis under the law is complex and very factually driven.  The interpretation of these factors is modified or guided by published case law.

If you have purchased real estate and are concerned with your neighbor’s mistaken belief as to a border or boundary dispute, you should consult with an experienced attorney to determine what the outcome of your case is likely to be and to assist in resolving the boundary dispute.
