Disputes between neighbors, whether they involve adjoining property owners or complaints about a neighboring business entity, can be uncomfortable situations to address. Though it may be awkward, a simple first step I encourage landowners to take is to try and engage with their neighbors before getting lawyers involved. A little communication can go a long way. However, when disputes between neighbors escalate, like in the case below regarding a nuisance verdict against a chicken farm in Henderson County, consulting with an attorney may be your best course of action. Our goal is to make sure you know your rights and that the enjoyment of your land is protected. In the webinar below, I provide some creative ways to deal with neighbor disputes. But if you have other questions or would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact me at (512) 894-5426 or [email protected].

If you are a landowner with a hunting lease on your property, I suggest you review Tiffany Lashmet’s blog below which provides great resources to protect yourself and your land. Based on my 17 years of experience working with landowners, I can attest that Lashmet’s advice is sound and you should consider crafting a written, rather than verbal, lease with hunters on your property. By putting your agreements in writing and clearly defining both your, and the hunter’s, goals and expectations, you can avoid a lot of headaches and potential issues. For questions or more information, please give me a call at (512) 894-5426 or email [email protected].
