What is an encroachment?


A: An encroachment refers to a physical entity that belongs to one landowner but lies wholly or partially on a neighbouring property. Encroachments may be sheds, driveways, curbs, roof overhangs, eaves, retaining walls or fences. A survey plan enables a property owner to identify encroachments and seek professional advice to remedy the situation.
