Disorderly Conduct

You live near the ocean, and neighbors constantly walk across your property to get to the wet stuff. How do you fix this? Whatever you do, don't let 'em earn a prescriptive right! (Prescriptive right kicks in after 10 years and allows someone to legally use your property as they have in the past). According to Hamptons Online, a sure-fire way to avoid prescriptive right is to simply grant the intruder specific access to your property. (You can even attach a fee!) By creating a license, prescriptive right becomes void and everybody wins. [Hamptons Online]
