Property disputes: how the house buyer Bureau can help

A property dispute may prompt a homeowner to sell and move on. After all, who wants to fight their neighbors daily? But how simple is it to find a buyer for such a property?

It may be tempting to remain silent about boundary line disputes or trees infringing on a neighbor's property. Still, sellers must legally disclose certain home information to potential buyers.

This guide provides an overview of the various types of property disputes and how to increase the likelihood of a sale.

What Exactly Is a Property Dispute?

There are numerous potential property disputes, but the most common are disagreements between neighbors over boundary lines and opposing lifestyles. Here are some examples:

  • Noisy neighbors regularly play loud music at unsociable hours, have frequent shouting matches, and generally disrupt the neighborhood.
  • "Shared" things need repair — if a fence or step begins to fall on or near the shared edge line between two properties and is used by both households, there may be disagreement about who should pay for necessary repairs.
  • Weedy trees and vegetation intrude on a neighboring property, such as a large tree blocking the light into or view from your garden.
  • An urgent need to link a neighbor's land — a dispute can arise if a leak or other problem occurs on your asset that necessitates access to a neighbor's property to be repaired and the neighbor rejects access.

This is not an exhaustive list, and any personal conflict could make the sale more difficult. But don't give up; selling a house while there is a property dispute is not impossible.

How to Increase Your Selling Prospects

You can do several things to boost your chances of selling in response to being honest and upfront about any property disputes.

  • Seek expert advice — a lawyer or legal representative will assist you on how to best handle the dispute to obtain a sale while adhering to the law.
  • Use a pay-buying service — a reputable house-buying company will have the funds to purchase your home quickly. Unlike traditional buyers, cash buyers buy properties in any situation or location. There is no need for endless viewings, and there is no risk of becoming entangled in a complex property chain.
  • Resolve the issue — this may seem obvious, but resolving a property dispute that has been ongoing for years can be difficult. However, once you've decided to relocate, you may be able to take a rather more objective stance. There are dispute settlement services that can assist you by serving as an intermediary between you and your neighbor.
  • Make your property stand out — finish any minor home improvements, ensure the property is well-presented, and capitalize on any unique or popular features, such as a huge yard or home office.
