What is my statue of limitations on an encroached fence - property in CA?

1 Answers. Asked on May 21st, 2013 on Zoning, Planning and Land Use - California
More details to this question:
I bought a property 3 years ago in CA. A fence was built prior to my ownership that encroached on my property. How long do I legally have to pursue the neighbor to move their fence? I've read 3 years or 5 years. I've had the land surveyed and they indeed are on my property. thanks

As a practical matter, we cannot offer an opinion on the statutes of limitation absent more detailed facts, including the identity of the affected parties.   Our firm blogs the leading easement  cases.  If you are interested, check out   If you still have questions, give us a call.
