A Boundary County conundrum

October 2, 2018
My neighbor had his attorney contact me about the surveyed (2018) property line he thinks is in error. Months go by. Nothing said any further about a possible survey error. No new surveys done.

My neighbor is now building a new fence 12-plus feet past the surveyed, recorded (2018) and marked property line.

I called the sheriff to report trespass. The neighbor told the sheriff it is his property. End of story according to the deputy.

Apparently it does not fit the new trespass law and is instead a “civil matter.”

Guess I’m SOL. I’m soon to be fenced out of land I paid for. Land the county/state says I own. Land I pay taxes on.

It could be worse I suppose … he could have claimed my dog was his too.
