Your husband can add you to the deed....you are married. Regardless, You are at least trying to take care of business. A shame that he lighten a fire under you, then pulling out the rug.

Learn a lesson going forward from his behavior....take care of legal issues and keep yourself protected financially. Hugs kiddo....keep updating.

Another possibility is that your husband actually gives them permission in writing to use that section of the property. Adverse possession must be open and notorious.

Thus, if you’ve given them permission to use it, they cannot take it via adverse possession.

We are Not getting an Attorney unless we really have to. If we have to sell part of that property to this neighbor, we will. Or we might just give him written permission to use part of our land. I know it will all work out one way or the other.
My father-in-law allowed a neighbor to build a shed and use part of his property for years. By the time my father-in-law died, enough time had passed, that the only option was to sell that acre to the neighbor. I can't remember what it sold for of if the neighbor got it at a good price. All I remember is the whole situation was frustrating.

Good luck )

A perfect example of why this needs to be dealt with now. Starting the process when you decide to sell will cloud the title and will make selling harder and it will take much longer, which will frustrate most buyers and will cause them to back out. Sticking your head in the sand may work for ostriches, but not when it comes to property line issues.

My wife handles all the small stuff. When I get involved the neighbors know to hide. It's your land, take it back.

While you are contemplating how to deal with this situation on the long term, I would go and simply post several No Trespassing signs on your trees in the area where your neighbors have trespassed. Perhaps simply border your whole property with signage even those areas where you neighbors have not trespassed.

And, I'd simply go and physically move back to their yards, on the other side of you border all items of those neighbors that have been left on your property. I would send a letter to the shed owner giving them a designated date to have moved their shed. This is a metal shed....their is no permanence like footings and such...this is movable.

I would then simply string sturdy rope, or chain or some other easy to throw up barrier from tree to tree, or post to post.....with more "Do Not Trespass" laminated signs. Especially in the area where this neighbor has made a bike path. I'd drive rebar, or some strong pipe into the ground blocking access to this path, and along this path right in the middle of it, with signage attached. If the kid can't ride his motor bike along this path, he will stop. The liability to you is real....if this kid or a friend of his gets hurt, believe me the parents will sue you because they know it is your property.

Take pics of your signage, and your property barrier rope fencing.....then if they move these, or defy these you should call the police and report trespassing. I would even put up cameras in the area of the bike path....high enough that it is a hardship for a kid to take them down.

I believe that rather than behaving apologetically like you've been discussing, be proactive. Make them the ones who feel like they need to prove their boundaries if they dispute your border fencing. Realistically, they won't/can't. And, if they weren't already trespassing, you would not even be worrying about what you were planning to do on your own property. https://www.bing.com/search?q=wilder...50da0146b2ae53

And you do not need your husband's permission to protect your home and property....if you all get sued your part of that suit.....and if a kid gets injured....you will be sued for hospital expenses by the other property owners insurance company, guaranteed.

Take back your peace of mind...You are in the right.

Exactly. And knowing now what you've learned....Use that hindsight now.
