Say ‘No’ to Encroachment- Tips to Save Your Property from Unwanted Intrusion

Dec 21, 2017 Share

Have you ever thought of the hassles you can face from property encroachment? Having a house of your own is probably the greatest achievement one can ever had. Especially, if you have lived in a sharing apartment for a long time, there cannot be a better feeling than owning a house! The freedom that you can get in your owned property is incomparable to none. With bringing in a gush of free will and responsibilities, home ownership gives you an identity of your own.

But, have you ever thought of the fact that owning a home can also raise certain limitations, which you will practically not want to come across. When it comes to your property lines, you have actually got to be serious and cautious. Every property happens to have certain boundaries and all such specifications are found on the legal sheet given to the owner during possession. Right from the sizes of the rooms to the square footage of each cabinet, every minute detail remains mentioned in the paper. But, what if the property gets entangled in several disputes? What if the property you own bumps into unnecessary hassles?

Researches say that one of the common problems most of the property owners happen to face is encroachment or infringement of land. For instance, your next door neighbour might pull out a part of their residential sector on your land and it can create huge differences when you would want to put your property on sale or like to take on a construction.

So, if you are in search of few effective tips to save your property from unwanted encroachment, this post is going to help you with a sound guideline.

  • You should always take legal help in this regard. This is the most important thing one should probably be concerned about on a prime note. Before you go with any formality, make sure that your property is free from all kinds of encumbrances. The person whom you are dealing with should be the real owner of the plot and all the documents pertaining to buying the property should be perfectly verified. Apart from saving a lot of hassles, it will also help you in legal formalities. Also, the trespassing laws of today are quite effective and can come to your aid, provided you are striding on the right track.
  • Though it doesn’t sound so prudent, still you should always put emphasis on the fact that the registration records are computerized. It not only increases the level of security, but also puts off the chance for possible forgery.
  • Before you are buying a plot of land, keep an eye on the fact that all the mutations are done in your favour.  Also, things like water tax and property tax should always be paid on time and as a responsible buyer, this is something you should always be bothered about on a serious note.
  • Now in case, you are owning a vacant land, periodic visit to the same is something you should consider quite seriously. Frequent visit to the land will not only save your property from random intrusion, but will also hold on to your interest the best.

Nevertheless, there have been a number of cases where it’s seen that in spite of taking all the precautions, lands are encroached upon under certain circumstances. In such cases, one can easily raise the issue under Section 145 of the Criminal Procedure Code and Sections 5 and 6 of the Specific Relief Act. Even so, all you need to have is all the relevant documents pertaining to the ownership and your possession can easily be re-obtained.
