What are the land laws in California regarding encroachment?


Answer by  Advisor (1032)

Land laws are very specific in coastal states and rapidly growing areas. If natural encroachment, you probably have no recourse as this would be an act of nature. If encroachment is due to civic resources, county boundary changes or neighboring landowner, you may be due restitution. Consult your local courthouse or recorder of deeds to determine your rights.

Encroachment requires a permit, which is issued by the Director of Public Works for the purpose of encroaching within public rights-of-way, which is typically bounded by both sides of property lines, which often includes sidewalks and parkways. The particular laws will differ from one county/city to another.

According to First American Title Ins. Co. v Dahlman 2006 Wi. 65 wi. 2006 the encroachment must be substantial to constitute an encumberance on the title for purposes of insurance.

Encroachment, where someone is on someone else's property and adds improvements, etc. and hopes to obtain easement or ownership rights is always tricky.
