Ontario Trespass Laws

A trespass to property can occur by persons, but also by structures, trees or bushes on a property. If those items should cross a property line, they constitute a continuing trespass to the adjacent property until they are removed or repaired. Brown Litigation, our commercial litigation lawyers have successfully obtained court orders resulting in the removal of offending buildings, decks and trees. Further, we have obtained damage awards for the related financial losses caused by the trespass.

If an the offending structure, or tree does not cross a property line, but causes resulting damage to an adjacent property, the resulting nuisance is actionable and could result in court orders to remove or repair the structure, and for payment of all costs associated with damages.

Townships, cities and municipalities are not able to assist property owners in these trespass situations, particularly if there exists a dispute over the location of property lines. Only the courts can order removal, repairs, and damages in trespass and nuisance matters.
