Land ownership & property line disputes in BC
A person’s home is typically their most valuable asset. Many people also own a recreational or an investment property. Disputes with respect to the ownership of land are often complex and typically require the assistance of a lawyer. We have experience in assisting our clients in resolving many different types of land disputes.
Who can be involved in a Property Dispute?
Property disputes can involve just about anyone who has an interest in the real estate in question. For example, most property disputes involve the owner of the property in some way, but they can also involve:
- Landlords and Tenants;
- Homeowner Associations (HOAs);
- Family Members;
- Builders and Developers;
- Government Agencies;
- and/or Municipalities.
It can be important to keep in mind that cities and municipalities can be part of a property dispute. Cities have the ability to own property, and often have agencies that regulate property or issue building permits (such as a city or town planning department).
How do you solve land disputes?
Settlement or Agreement. The best solution to your dispute may lie in a settlement resolving differences with your opponent before the matter ever gets to court. Use of land is a complex subject so in any proposed settlement, you need to draw up clear agreements in writing on all important points.
What is an example of a property dispute?
Property disputes come in many different forms. Examples include individuals litigating the ownership rights of a property (land title), the location of the ownership line that separates them from one (land boundary), one’s right to use the land of another (easements), or even riparian (water) or littoral boundaries.
What does it mean when land is disputed?
A “land dispute” involves conflicting claims to rights in land by two or more parties, focused on a particular piece of land, which can be addressed within the existing legal framework. Land disputes may or may not reflect some broader conflict over land.
