Adverse possession, consentable line, and acquiescence: Boundary resolution theories compared

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Resolving boundary disputes usually results in neighbors becoming antagonistic and oftentimes engaging in a costly venture. Land has always been associated with the identity of the owners, and any infringement on the physical property results as an infringement on the person. In general, the parties involved lose sight of cost and focus on the location of the boundary. This article compares differing theories to resolve boundary disputes and when appropriate advance the Doctrine of Consentable Line, as opposed to adverse possession, to acquire title to land.
