Anyone who's had to navigate boundary issues like misplaced fences or encroaching structures will know that these disputes can be fraught with emotion, stress and surprise costs.
Another property issue that can test a homeowner's faith in humanity, it's illegal builds. There are plenty of people who believe all is as it should be with their property, only to find out that one or several of the structures on their property were built by a previous owner without council approval. If you find yourself dealing with a dodgy build, you could be required to pay to get the structure up to scratch - or to demolish them entirely. Even with full due diligence, these property issues can pop up at any time after you've purchased a property.
