One thing that you might not realize is that the concept of adverse possession could mean that you lose part of your land if you don't speak up when someone else is using part of it. The criteria for this concept are outlined by Florida law. Generally, the other person must have possession of the specific area of property for seven years without trying to hide it and without you taking any action.
For example, if your neighbor builds a fence that is two feet on your side of the property line and you don't say anything to the neighbor for seven years, there is a chance that you could lose those two lineal feet of property if the person makes a claim to it.
We understand that trying to foresee all of the issues that could potentially occur is close to impossible. If you are in the midst of a real estate transaction or will be soon, we can work with you to help you address any problems that might arise.
