Neighbor Tries To Take Over This Guy’s Yard, Ends Up Losing A Part Of Their Own Land

this-isn't-my-yard-

Our tendency to claim and defend our space is deeply ingrained in our nature, originating from the primitive parts of our brains. These instincts can sometimes lead to unnecessary conflicts with neighbors, where we argue over small pieces of land without really thinking about it.

Imagine a situation where some neighbors started a pointless feud with a new neighbor who was just trying to be friendly. Instead of appreciating the gesture, they turned it into a silly argument. Eventually, their pettiness backfired when the new neighbor, pushed too far, took action. As a result, they ended up losing more of their yard than they were originally arguing about.

Keep on scrolling down below to read the whole story narrated by OP and make sure to read it till the end.

1. OP and her wife bought their first home in early 2021 and according to OP it was the perfect time, their house is an older neighborhood but a new build.

2. When they bought their house the backyard needed work and it was about 100 feet deep due to overgrown vines, bushes, and small trees. Moreover, OP said their plot is shaped like a parallelogram.

10. OP told him that they could;ld split the cost of the survey but he wasn’t interested then OP went to do his things in his yard and two weeks passed by and when he went to cut his grass he saw bricks, rocks, more limbs, and now OP is irritated. So OP knocked on their door but there was no answer.

12. OP said to him that it was strange his mower ran over it and ended up in his yard where he said my yard ends, then OP told him that his survey was new and more likely to be right to which he replied ” Well then I guess you are going to have to pay to get a new survey done”
