iF A BUSINESS HAS AN OUTSIDE STORAGE CONTAINER USED IN ITS BUSINESS FOR MANY YEARS AND THE MUNICIPALITY ENACTS AN ORDINANCE PROHIBITING ITS USE, IS THE USE EXEMPT FROM THE LAW BECAUSR THE USE WAS IN PLACE BEFORE THE ORDINANCE WAS PASSED IN New Jersey.
Purchased a home with a fence in the backyard. A survey in 2008 had the property line inside the fence for 13 inches. The fence was built since 1955.
A few days ago I received a complaint from the homeowner in the back my house that that claims the property line with in the fence.
Does this legal claim have validity given the time basis since the fence was built.
I purchased acreage in 1981 for recreation use and have had family owned travel trailers ever since. Over the years we have made substantial investment installing power , well gates etc. the township has now passed ordinance to force us to remove our trailers when not occupied. We were told there would be no variances or grandfathering with this ordinance to allow us to keep them there. This will cost us thousands of dollars every year in fuel to transport them nearly 200 miles round trip, 10-15 times each year. It also restricts us to use 4 months each year. We always use it 10 months per year. Can the township force the change after we’ve been there over 30 years?
I attend a small church in Smithville, TX. My church has been in its location since 1939. Generations of people/families have been in attendance over the years. It’s a very special little church and all who attend there love it. There is an auto body shop next door to the church. He purchased a piece of land next to the church for $10. I believe it was an inheritance that someone sold to him. That land runs right into the church building. The Auto Body Shop did do a survey. We are questioning the starting points used. We believe they used current starting points not the historical information. He is now aggressively trying to put up a fence which will shut down our church. The fence will block the driveway completely and cut off the building. I am wondering about “Grandfathering” or Adverse Possession. How do we protect our church? Is it legal that he could purchase land that runs into the church?
The HOA has decided hat the arc covenants stating no for lease signs will now be enforced. We have been renting and placing a or lease sign in the yard for over a decade. I am grandfathered. What remedies can i take if i get fined?
