Title Disputes – Boundaries, Easements and Adverse Possession

With eastern Long Island’s extraordinary real estate values, land titles that date to the 17th century, and unique title issues affecting waterfront lands, title disputes in our region are often complex and at the forefront of New York’s common law.

EHADP’s attorneys have participated in many of these title disputes, representing landowners and title companies in “quiet title” actions, boundary disputes between neighbors over their shared property lines, “adverse possession” and “prescriptive easement” cases, disputes over the use and scope of rights of way, contests over riparian rights and title to lands affected by erosion or accretion, and trespass claims.   With our collective experience reviewing thousands of titles and title questions involving Eastern Long Island properties, we are often asked to serve as local counsel to attorneys less familiar with the region’s unique title issues.
