Problem

Boundary disputes between neighbours

Other Names:
Confusing property boundaries
Unresolved community boundaries
Unsatisfactory delimitation of boundaries
Neighbourhood property disagreements
Incidence:
In many communities there are long-term disputes between neighbouring villages, between owners of neighbouring farms and fields, or between owners of neighbouring buildings concerning the exact location of the boundaries. Controversial construction on an individual's property is often proclaimed to be destructive to neighbourhood property value. Such complaints have raised questions about the definitions of property boundaries and individual responsibility toward community property value.
