Property Overlap

Greenville, SC: (Apr-11-08) The Greenville City Council brought a lawsuit against the Cliffs at Glassy Inc. and Cliffs developer Jim Anthony, alleging that a private mountain road encroaches on public water land. City officials claimed that a more recent line drawn as surveys were completed for Cliff's lots shows the entire road crosses onto public land at a hairpin turn on Corbin Mountain. In his defense, Anthony stated that the road was built five to seven years ago and stayed almost entirely within an accepted painted boundary line between his property and city-owned watershed land. The dispute went public, and city records reveal that City Council approved a $75,000 settlement between the Cliffs and the Nature Conservancy, which owns a conservation easement on the property. The city was scheduled to privately discuss a separate settlement with the Cliffs.

In a recent development in the case, the Cliffs at Glassy Inc. would pay $100,000 to the city, resolving the dispute. Additionally, the developer will give the city four-hundredths of an acre of mountaintop land for the .29-acre slice where a city building encroaches on Cliff's property.

I have an encroachment issue with my neighbors driveway being built on our land. The title company has offered a 5000 dollar settlement. I am seeking advice on whether I should accept the offer.
