How do I handle encroaching neighbors, especially if I plan on selling my property?

Q: Hi Dottie and Team. We do enjoy your show, listen every week. We’ve lived in our home in suburban New Jersey for over 25 years. Currently, the large, irregularly shaped property is demarcated by a few survey posts, but some are missing, and it looks as though a few of my neighbors are encroaching on my property.

I’m looking for your advice as to what to do both now and in the future. Thank you. Read More.
