When it looks like there is going to be a lawsuit, land ownership can get pretty complicated. Whether it's a residential property dispute to determine a property line or a survey before a new contruction project begins, it is important to get a legal expert witness who has experience with multiple areas of focus, including both residential and commercial land-related litigation.
Legal disputes often occur when a neighbor replaces a boundary structure, such as a fence, hedge, etc. Ideally, the two parties involved will get together and work it out. This often does not occur. When it is not clear where a property line is, that's when it is time to call in a legal expert witness.
The legal expert witness will then do a thorough analysis of deeds, land registries, physical features of the property, and more. A property survey is also usually required in order to properly determine where he or she thinks the property line is. If this is not acceptable in the eyes of the involved parties and it goes to court, the surveyor will act as a legal expert witness in the court case.
