Understanding Pennsylvania Land Disputes:

Disputes over the boundaries of property are especially common in the Pittsburgh area. Property lines are not always clearly delineated, either because of peculiar history or difficult topography. Hills and banks erode, and even the best old surveys can become outdated quickly.

Many properties were once owned by family members who paid little attention to formal property lines. As a result, many houses, garages, and walkways are built on a neighbor’s land. Shared driveways are particularly common in some neighborhoods. Even among the best of neighbors, these features sometimes cause heated disputes. Unclear boundaries can also create problems whenever property owners try to sell their land.

Don’t wait for the problem to fix itself. Our real estate litigation attorneys can evaluate all options to resolve your property line dispute—from negotiated easements or purchase agreements to filing suit to quiet title. Call Flaherty Fardo for a free consultation at 412.802.6666.
