Legal Question

Asked on: 5/17/13, 4:22 am

We (wife and I) own an acre of land in western NC. A few years back, we put in a well. The county guy came out, shot a line, and put a flag in the ground. He said that this is where the well would go. The well-diggers came out, doug the well, and capped it.

Later, we found that the well is not on our land, but our neighbors. who, because we're thinking of selling the land, will not grant water rights.

What, if any, recourse do we have with the county?
