Jeffrey R. Schmitt
Attorney at Law
Attorney Jeff Schmitt recently spoke with the Ladue News about disputes between neighbors
His comments appear in the article “Legal Corner: Keep It Neighborly.”
Schmitt shared that the most frequent issues he sees involve property boundaries.
“People should know that this is not a typical business transaction where you only deal with somebody one time,” Schmitt says. “You could be living next to them for a long time. You don’t want to burn bridges, or things could get very uncomfortable.”
Though many conflicts can be solved without legal counsel, Schmitt says there are times when it’s appropriate, like with forming a draft of rights for things like driveway easements. For instance, he explains if a driveway is built a few inches onto someone else’s property, it’s a good idea for homeowners to form a written agreement with their neighbor detailing rights and obligations.
“That way, when either one of those parties goes to sell their house, it doesn’t affect the sale,” Schmitt says. “It also gives the new owner peace of mind.”
