Real Estate Practice : Lesson 523


A homeowner has without warning, and without knowing, constructed a fence in his backyard about 7 inches over the property line of his neighbor.

This would be considered an encroachment.

Is this fact true or false ?

Please take your time. The solution is posted below the wildlife photo.


A. True

An encroahment is a building or impovement to a property or any portion of it that extends beyond the legal property limit of the owner constructing the improvement or building.

An encroachment illegally intrudes on the land of the adjoining owner's property.
