Neighboring Property Owners
by Jacqueline P. Hand and James Charles Smith (West Group 1988, 2013-2014 Cumulative Supplement). This treatise provides a concise overview of the law concerning neighboring properties, and the rights and duties between landowners and those who live in close proximity. The authors bring together traditional real property issues such as nuisance, trespass, easements and covenants, adverse possession, lateral support, and water rights with newer topics such as land use, environmental controls, condo, coop, and time-sharing, all in one easily accessible volume. They also take a look at federal, state, and local regulations, such as zoning ordinances and environmental regulations. This book is a good starting point for finding the law when it comes to disputes between neighbors, providing citations to more specialized works as well as the most important primary authorities on any given topic.
