My brothers neighbor put up a chain link fence taking 25 feet of my brothers property. My brother is a 63 year old disabled veteran, and his new neighbor is not someone that he is comfortable talking to. His neighbor and friends, 10 of them, cleaned the property with machette knives. Not real friendly types. What should he do and how long does he have to do it? His zip code is 27229 in North Carolina.

Does he have an accurate survey of the property lines? If so then he can call the sheriff and have them talk to these encroachers. If not check with the Buncombe county office of deeds and see what they have on file--a lot is on the internet and can be downloaded. Of course he'll need an official stamped copy to give the sheriff. At any rate it eventually may take getting a lawyer involved if there is a disputed line. If he ignores the situation then these guys may be able to file for adverse possession in a few years so don't ignore the problem and hope it will go away.
